After downloading it I discovered that although the illustrations were in color, the print copy was all in black which made it impossible to follow the explanations being given. When they are referring to red, green and blue and all you see is black, that is not at all helpful.
Also the book contains an older version of a score sheet which is referred to in all the examples. While it states that the book has one you can cut out to refer to as you read along, the kindle version, of course, does not offer this option. The score sheet is included in the kindle version and is in color but is so small it is unreadable. I could make the book text print as large as I liked but the score card illustration stayed the same size no matter what. Again, not useful.
I returned the kindle version for a refund and ordered the hard copy. Can't wait for it to arrive. LOVE the content, hate the kindle version.

To be fair I want to edit my review of this book after having used the hard copy version for several months now. I used this book to self-teach myself and a few friends . . . all of us new to the game. We found this book to be an excellent source of information as well as being easy to follow.Read more ›
