This is a fascinating book but the Kindle edition does not do it justice for two main reasons. The first concerns the presentation of mathematical formulae: where these appear within the script they are almost invariably (and unnecessarily) shown as superscripts, and where they appear on separate lines they are in a small size font that is difficult to read. Secondly, there are typographical errors, the most serious of which relate to the Greek letter theta, which is used extensively as a mathematical symbol throughout the book: however, in about half of the places where the theta symbol should appear it is missing - there is a blank space, or not even a blank space. As a result the sentence or formula is incomprehensible.
The Kindle edition needs to be re-edited by someone who understands both mathematics and typography.
