1.0 out of 5 stars DO NOT BUY THE KINDLE VERSION!!!, February 4, 2011
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This review is from: Nursing Diagnosis Handbook: An Evidence-Based Guide to Planning Care (Kindle Edition)
The book is fine, but definitely buy the paper copy. The kindle version is not indexed, meaning that you cannot search for anything unless you go to the table of contents, scroll through the available letters, then scroll through the list of diagnoses. This is so inefficient that I really have no choice but to buy the paper copy now. A complete waste of $40!!!!

Ive been using Amazon for years and this is my first one star review... Way to go guys.

Index the book and I will gladly revise my review.

Thank YOU! I would love to replace my text with the Kindle version, but I don't want a version that is impossible to navigate.

The lack of index has been a problem w/ several of my ibooks for nursing. I cannot believe someone did not point this out to the publishers before it went into production. It's simply impossible to use w/o it! I'd love to eliminate paper from my life (and pounds from my book bag) but the lack of index is a deal breaker.

You can search any kindle book with the search feature. So you should be able to go to the search button (it looks like a magnified glass) and type in the diagnosis you're looking for that way. That is actually easier imho than a paper book.

That was my thought exactly. For me, the searchability of a digital text makes an index less important (though still occasionally important, I understand).
