About the Author

There was a problem filtering reviews right now. Please try again later.
First off we have the formatting. It's very poor, with whole paragraphs of text right adjusted and taking up only half the screen with the rest of it being a huge white space.
Second, and for a reference book this is a biggie, it doesn't have a working table of contents. Instead it just has a list of countries, but those countries aren't links but just plain text. What should happen is that each country should be clickable, so I can easily get to the appropriate page, but instead I just have a near useless list of countries covered in the book. It's as if someone started making the table of contents but forgot to add linking.
So yeah, the content is there and if I'm willing to put up with the poor formatting I am able to find the information I'm looking for, but it certainly could be much more user friendly. Crossing my fingers that this will all be fixed in an update at some point.
It's a good reference to have but, with boundaries and governments rapidly changing, you can find more current information online.
