Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
This book might be filled with good information, but with the Kindle edition it's not worth finding. The TOC is woefully insufficient. It will point you for example to the 'Alphabetical List of Entries', a 'Topical List of Entries' or 'The Encyclopedia', but once there you will find a list. Not interactive. Just a list. How do you find info on 'Distributors'? The TOC is no help. You have to do a search on the word, then scroll through the instances when 'distributors' shows up. In an encyclopedia of the wine business you can imagine it shows up a few times. How do you tell which instance is the encyclopedia article or just the word used in a sentence? You can't. Also imagine an index where everything is referenced by page numbers and you have a Kindle with location numbers. I like my Kindle, and luckily this book is not my first 'Kindle experience', but I think at a minimum using a Kindle should represent an enhanced reading experience, and a 'reference' book that doesn't let you access the reference materials is unacceptable.
