The 2 stars are only for the Kindle edition

Maltin's guide is as essential as it ever was, but buying it in ebook form was a bad mistake. The table of contents allows you to navigate by the first letter in a film's title, but given that each section still contains thousands of films, this doesn't help much, and even if you type the full title of a film into the search box, it still takes an eternity to find the film you are looking for due to the book's length. For this book to work as an ebook, the table of contents needs to be much longer, with sections being based on the first three letters of the title, to allow the book to be browsed in much the same way as the print edition.
