Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
Purchased the E book for one of my classes and I was very happy that I did that. The book was with me everywhere I went, I could just pull out my phone and read. The content was actually pretty good too. It really covered the history of the blues, spanning from the beginning til now.
