The electronic version of Netter's Atlas is UNUSABLE!
on August 23, 2013
I love eBooks. Were it a viable option, ALL of my books would be eBooks. But Netter's Atlas demonstrates why the technology is not yet ready for some specific books to be viewed electronically.
PERHAPS (and I'm just speculating here), it is the information density of the color pictures and small text on every page that makes it unworkable. However, despite my using a 22 inch flatscreen, and a new PC running a third generation i7 processor, with RAM to spare, each change of page is followed by an interminable wait for the next page to load. Moreover, there does not seem to be any simple way to select a page or panel by number and go directly to it.
If I had the option of returning the ebook and buying the hardcopy, even taking a partial hit on the price of the ebook, I would do it in a second!
