Editorial Reviews

Just as Wall Street is an icon to the investment community, Fortune magazine is one to its readership--the difference being Fortune's diversified reach into the many facets of business. Columns include features on the marketplace, tech movers and shakers, career trends, U.S. politics, and even European business. Readers also look forward to the annually updated Fortune lists, which include the "40 Richest Under 40," "Most Powerful Women," and the "Fortune 500."

The Kindle Edition of Fortune 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.

1.0 out of 5 stars Awful. Not much else to say September 2, 2008
By Ranty
I give paper fortune a 3-4 out of five stars. The Kindle edition is horrible, a complete waste of time. You get a few of the main articles, but most of the rest of what shows up turns out to be tiny little bits of junk: Text boxes and pullout-garbage (I used to work in the magazine world) that is essentially page filler in the printed editions. I thought this was so cheap it would have to be worthwhile, but unless they include more meat, this is a total waste of money. Better to get the WSJ or Financial Times.

4.0 out of 5 stars What a big difference lack of pictures make May 7, 2009
Reading the Fortune magazine on my Kindle 2.0 has made me realize both the pros and cons of reading a printed magazine. If you want the most efficient Fortune magazine reading experience, then get the Kindle version. If you want the best overall magazine reading experience, the printed version may still have the edge as of today.

The Kindle version has no pictures (as of 5/7/09) and no advertisements. There are only articles and opinions. I was shocked how skimpy Fortune magazine was in content as I was able to read EVERY article in less than 15 minutes, which is less than it takes me to read the daily Wall Street Journal (Kindle version). I usually take good 30 minutes to read the printed Fortune magazine.

Reading Fortune from Kindle 2.0 is a different experience than reading from a printed version. The printed Fortune has glossy advertisements and pictures. The tactfile feeling of turning each page somehow makes reading the printed Fortune magazine a slightly more rewarding experience. The analogy is similar to getting news from television versus the radio. You may get the same exact news but the television news has visuals which speak a 1000 words that the radio can never duplicate.

The speed of which I was able to finish the entire Fortune magazine in Kindle has made me realize exactly how much time I spend viewing a magazine's advertisements and pictures. Also, the ability to quickly peruse an entire magazine using your thumb still can't be duplicated by Kindle.

But the Kindle has some inherent advantages over the printed version. Kindle version has a search feature based on keywords. Kindle will allow you to read just about everything much faster, including the Fortune magainze. Using the Table of Contents is far more efficient.

1.0 out of 5 stars missing key content from print edition - poor quality October 1, 2009
The Oct 12 Kindle edition shows an actual picture of the print Fortune cover, which shows a feature article about Charlie Rose. Yet this article is nowhere in the Kindle edition. I read it in the print edition and it was excellent. I contacted Amazon and received a lame answer that its controlled by the publisher. So beware that any Kindle magazine can be missing key content of the print edition totally at the publisher's discretion. All Kindle magazines are suspect as being inferior and you cannot assume you're getting the same content as the print edition.

5.0 out of 5 stars Good Deal July 1, 2008
By S
Fortune is a magazine I have found enjoyable in print. The KINDLE version is up to par as far as the articles and I'm happy to have it in a nice clutter free locale ready to read whenever I want!

2.0 out of 5 stars Back-Issues on Kindle February 23, 2008
As a kindle owner, I was disappointed to learn you cannot purchase back-issues of Fortune magazine (or other magazines). Even as I write this review, it is frustrating that the one issue I want "100 Best Companies to Work For" is still visually advertised on Amazon / Kindle website, but not available for downloading on Kindle.

5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent way to read Fortune. June 27, 2011
There is no better way to read Fortune magazine. With 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 Fortune. 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.

3.0 out of 5 stars Why so much for so little? June 13, 2011
By Toybin
Why is the Kindle version $30 a year? It costs more to get the stripped down Kindle version of the magazine than for a 1 year subscription ($19.99 for the year)for the full printed version. I don't get it, put ads in the Kindle version I don't care. But it shouldn't cost more to get an email than it does to print and distribute a magazine.

1.0 out of 5 stars Key content missing from the Kindle version June 6, 2011
I bought the June 13th edition "Retire Rich" that said on the cover that there were "25 Stocks" recommended - none of them were listed in the Kindle version of the article. I called for a refund and won't be buying any more Fortune online.

I love the print but why no version for the MS Surface??? Totally ridiculous. The Surface is a VERY popular tablet. They need to do some development there I think.
