Ebook not worth buying
on January 13, 2011
The information in this book seems useful, but the ebook is completely worthless. To me itcomes off like a cash grab, "hey, let's post a PDF of this, call it an ebook and charge 30bucks for it!
The length table of contents is just a list, no navigation, no links. So, you may be able to use this as if it were a paper book, if you're extremely patient, it fails to include even the basic features you might expect, like chapter bookmarks, or a working index. This book is over 1000 pages, a reference book, and no attempt has been made to make it navigable.
The formatting is heavily flawed, one oversized typeface throughout, pictures separated from their captions, text boxes filled to the margins and separated from the content they refer to. I've never seen such a Mickey mouse approach to formatting, even in free ebooks.
I could go on, but if I were you I'd save your money, or buy the paper book. It's probably more readable than this mess.
If I could return this book I would.
