The formatting in the Kindle edition is a bit weird- there are a lot of places where the name of the speaker is not bolded or offset and so you have to read twice to see who is speaking. Also, there is one image that is not rendered at all, it's just a target mark with a caption. For a book with very few images, you'd think they could have made sure all 4 or 5 of them made it into the Kindle edition especially for the $14.99 price.
