I abandoned Barnes & Noble for e-textbooks because you could only use them on a regular computer - no eReaders, no mobile devices. This eBook for Kindle has the opposite problem - I can only read it on my Kindle, meaning if I need a bigger display or other, more robust features for studying, I'm out of luck.

As for the content, the text is not bad. I wish, however, the book provided clearer definitions of the vocabulary terms listed in the back of each chapter. For many of the terms, a clear definition is provided neither in the context of the book where the word appears or in a glossary. Amazon's X-ray feature sounds like a good idea, but unfortunately, the key terms it chooses to define are not the words highlighted by the authors of this book. It falls seriously short. I give this two stars because I feel I am learning successfully from the book. For the most part, the Kindle format is just getting in the way.

It says the book is the "Kindle Edition" but it isn't actually available for Kindle. If you have a Kindle and plan to read this book on it, you're out of luck. It's "incompatible" according to Amazon customer service. This is supposedly the decision of the author or the publisher. A Kindle book that is not compatible with a Kindle. Makes a lot of sense to me!

Make notes of specific pages and sections as it has a tendency to get all muddled all together. Overall not a bad read, if not somewhat entertaining.

It is very good. There are some marks. But not many. I can understand it because it is a used one. I'm using it very well.

It was a used book. What do you expect? It was nothing great, but at least it didn't fall apart.
