3.0 out of 5 stars Rating applies to Kindle version, 24 April 2014
This review is from: James Wong's Homegrown Revolution (Kindle Edition)
I need to emphasise that this review relates to my purchase of the book for my Kindle Paperwhite.

On that basis, beware! It's not a user-friendly - or even usable - digital representation of the book. Parts of the book cannot be viewed at a readable size (and it is not possible to change the font size) and where section can be selected and read, it can only be read paragraph by paragraph.

Not one to be beaten, I downloaded the Kindle app to enable me to read it on a laptop / pc but then established that this book has not been produced in a format compatible to being read on a pc.

It may be more successful on a Kindle Fire or similar - I can't check - but if you only have a black and white Kindle and decide to purchase it, check to see whether you are satisfied and if not, via your return it to Amazon for a refund - I have.

However, I'm reasonably convinced that the book itself is good and the contents worth reading so I will be buying it in book form.

Thank you for not being one of those people who totally wastes everyone's time and unfairly gives a 1 to a book they can't read, just because they can't read it on a Kindle.

I know Amazon.com needs to have separate pages for Kindle comments, but it's irksome to go to all the 1 comments - trying to find out if the book is rubbish for people who want to READ THE BOOK - and find out that they are all or mostly people upset because it doesn't work on Kindle or arrived too late or damaged, etc.

Thanks for good sense in giving a middling rating - some credit to the content -but points off for being (yet another?) Kindle-fail.
