Good book, but very poor Kindle edition.
on 4 March 2014
I've given this book 3 stars overall because, while I have no reason to believe the *printed* book is anything other than of a high quality, the current Kindle version is really badly done. The text is centered all the way through the book, rather than left-aligned as normal - this makes for an uncomfortable and tiring reading experience and the Kindle version has very obviously has not been proof-read: there are numerous errors throughout, such as 4 or 5 words running into each other without spaces; headings running into the opening text of a chapter, without spaces; tables of information with their original formatting lost, making them almost impossible to read properly. The list of faults is long.
So, in essence, while the book itself is very good and well written on the whole, the Kindle edition is poor and seriously needs an update. I find it hard to believe that the author could have sanctioned this e-book. When a customer has paid for a Kindle book, a certain standard should be expected: this edition falls way below that standard.
3 to 4 stars for the actual book content, 1 star for the Kindle edition.
