Disappointed by the Kindle edition
on 20 April 2013
This is a great book. Actually the best anatomy book ever written. I used it as a medical student 20 years ago, and I still use it as an Orthopaedic surgeon today. Yet, the main advantage (to have the text and image side by side for a quick and comprehensive view) is lost in the Kindle edition. Even in the iPad you need to scroll through 3-5 pages to have the same information that you get in one view (of two pages at the same time) in the printed version ! Plus (actually I should say "minus") there is no "table of contents" in the Kindle edition, so you have to search and search and search ...
Obviously the editors did a quick transfer (which unfortunately is the case for the majority of Medical textbooks) to Kindle for a quick buck. HUGE disappointment.
