Editorial Reviews

The color Kindle edition of Forbes is now available on the Kindle Reading App for your Android device. Download issues at no extra cost from Archived Items.

Forbes magazine names the richest people and the biggest companies and covers global business stories with insight, solid sourcing, and the sort of groupie zeal usually reserved for fanzines. No merger, new ad campaign, or lawsuit goes unnoticed and stories always focus on the movers who are shaking things up. Read Forbes to make sense of today's volatile market--or just for the sheer pleasure of reading good reporting.

The Kindle Edition of Forbes contains most articles found in the print edition, but will not include all images and tables. For your convenience, issues are auto-delivered wirelessly to your Kindle at the same time the print edition hits the newsstand.

3.0 out of 5 stars Integrated spam is a problem February 20, 2009
I just cancelled my Kindle subscription to Forbes. I have been a subscriber to the print version in the past and have had the Kindle version for about 6 months. I agree with the other comments concerning the poor graphics but that was tolerable. What was not tolerable was the recent issue. Included in virtually every story was an inserted offer to subscribe to the print version of the magazine. This offer was not at the beginning or the end or between articles but was randomly placed within the text of virtually every article. I found this disrupted the flow of the article and extremely annoying.

4.0 out of 5 stars Pretty good duplication of print content, but... September 5, 2008
I get the print edition of Forbes still and have been considering dropping it in favor of the Kindle edition to save paper and because I don't care whether I get the supplemental magazines (Forbes Life, etc.) that mainly show me how the other half (other 1%?) lives, but the previous reviewer complaint about tables/graphs on Kindle is on target:

For example, the recent issue with tables of Mutual Funds and ETFs showed only one of the tables (it is readable if you look really close). The half dozen other tables in the print edition were missing, with only a text line place holder.

This is not good, folks. Graphics are a problem on Kindles, but there is no excuse for including some tables or graphs that display OK and leaving out similar ones.

So far, I've found only the NYTimes does graphic newspaper content well, and the other magazines I've tried on Kindle are like text blogs, they don't do graphics at all.

There really is no excuse for this (Forbes, particularly with their pretention to be technologically with it, even with an article in that same issue on E-Ink and Kindle!). There is another Kindle format that some technical books are using ("TOPAZ", files have an AZW1 file extention).

Some Kindle books I've read in this format have a feature where when you click on a graphic, a "Zoom" option is added to the Kindle "Upper" ("highlight", "lookup", etc.) menu. Select "Zoom" and a half page hard-to-read chart is enlarged to full page and readable.

If we're going to pay good money for Kindle versions, the publishers should provide as close to print format and content as they can manage with the current state of Kindle technology. So far Forbes and most others aren't making the grade.

4.0 out of 5 stars Great magazine, need better editing for Kindle June 13, 2008
Length: 0:16 Mins
WSJ and Forbes are the two must-have's for people who cares about finance and investment. Forbes Kindle version covers the same stories as the printed version. Very informative, very nice commentaries.

My only complain is that some of tables are not readable in Kindle. They need better editing/formating. Uploaded is a piece of video: you cannot read the tables no matter what.

1.0 out of 5 stars A Pricing issue May 27, 2010
I just received an offer for a year's print subscription to Forbes for $21.99. Or, I can subscribe via Kindle for a year for $30.00...over 1/3 MORE. With the Kindle edition, the publisher doesn't have to print or mail yet the costs are higher. Duh. The content is the same (excellent) but the Kindle edition is inferior in pricing, and, from other reviewers, in formatting. USPS here I come.

5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent and convenient way to read Forbes. June 27, 2011
When it comes to speed and convenience, there is no better way to read Forbes magazine. With almost no advertisements and minimal pictures, you just get the articles in a very concise and easy to read format. With wireless delivery, you get the magazine delivered to your Kindle, no matter where you are, as soon as it comes out.

I can't say enough how much I enjoy this version of Forbes. I am able to read it in half the time that a magazine usually takes me, and with it being in my Kindle am able to have it with me, whenever I'm looking for something to read.

Magazines and newspapers are the best thing about Kindle.

5.0 out of 5 stars 2012 kindle review April 27, 2012
It looks like most of the past reviewers' gripes have been addressed. This looks and feels like a pure digital magazine. No flashy advertisements stealing focus, no "interactive" infographic junk, and magazine quality resolution that looks great on both the Fire and the new iPad. I don't have a print version to compare, but this very much looks like a straight scanned digital conversion of the print magazine. The only other digital feature I feel like is missing is a table of contents with hyperlinks to the page numbers.

The above is all what I expect from a digital magazine. The primary reason I'm motivated to write this review though is to praise the quality of the articles and the variety of information and formats used throughout the magazine. That and the very reasonable price at time of writing, the ability to purchase a single issue and cancel the subscription at any time is a no brainier. I really feel like I'm getting a lot of value for my money. Forbes has transitioned to the digital age in every facet that counts and none that are wasteful.

3.0 out of 5 stars Good Magazine for Business Generalists August 12, 2012
Verified Purchase
Forbes is generally a good magazine for business generalists. It's not the latest or the greatest in terms of detailing but it is pretty comprehensive and insightful in it's agenda.
