More About the Author

Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
Beware of this kindle edition if you've got an older Kindle, like me. This is a scan of the original book, so there's no enlarging the text. Haven't tried reading it on the iPad app, yet, however. I think I can enlarge there, with good graphics. Still, for the price, who's complaining?
