Unfortunately, the usability of the the Kindle version is seriously undermined by the fact that there are no internal links. It is not possible to go from the chapter list to individual chapters, nor from index listings to the passage indexed. Only page numbers are provided in the chapter list and index, but page numbers are not an option in the "Go to" feature in the Kindle reader, which only allows jumping by location. In other words, one has to read the book straight through -- not so burdensome, given its pleasant narrative style, but not so useful for a reference book, where one wants to be able to look something up and go straight to it. If one wants to use this as a reference book, only the paper version will do.
It would be a very meritorious act to distribute an updated version that could be used as a reference book. Ideally, this would involve active links from the chapter list and index entries into the body of the text, and page numbers as well. Failing this, even adding page numbers would make the book far more useful. Failing even that, links from the chapter list to the actual chapters would be better than the current Kindle version (as of 3 January 216). .
