5.0 out of 5 stars Review of Kindle edition, April 21, 2011
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This review is from: A System Of Logic, Ratiocinative And Inductive (Kindle Edition)
Some complaints have been registered about the size of the type in the print edition. Clearly this is not an issue with the Kindle version.

This volume was a surprising -- even astonshing -- find or me, because it is at once a complete edition of one of the most important works in modern philosophy of science and it is a particularly well executed Kindle book to boot.

For the price, I was expecting a Project Gutenberg .TXT file stove-piped into a Kindle file. (I find such things unreadable, regardless of the fact that they are free.) This text, however, is a true Kindle book with active table of contents, dynamic formatting WRT to the selected font size, and hyper-linked footnotes. Being a Kindle text, you can annotate to your heart's desire, so this is a genuine study text for working scholars, whether in or out of academia.

One odd note of no particular significance: when one chooses the "goto" function from the menu, the table of contents is not one of the choices that comes up. I've seen that in a few other kindle books as well, so this was not a particular shock. The TOC is fully active, and a vitally useful tool for tracking elements of Mill's argument, so it is worthwhile to simply bookmark that point thereby making it instantly accessible whenever you need to refer to it.

For anyone interested in classics of Western philosophy, this is an essential addition to your Kindle library, made all the more exceptional by the quality of its formatting.
