1.0 out of 5 stars Terrible fonts and layout
Reviewed in the United Kingdom on June 5, 2019
In case Amazon is clumping reviews, this is for the edition released by Important Books in 2017, ISBN 978-1-38-817383-8 (the one with the yellow cover with various currencies like USD, GBP and Euro).

As you can see in the scan, there's a significant amount of white space at the top which makes no sense, the regular font is very narrow and small making it hard to read while the titles are written with a different font which has weird spacing (see the space after the C in "Chapter" or "Central" or the space after the R and m in "Removing"). The same font used for the chapter titles is used to emphasize some words in the text or caption various diagrams, which makes it quite annoying.

I bought the paper version of the book because it's easier for me to read a normal book than a PDF, which is freely available on the Mises Institute website, but the book is practically unreadable. I would normally return it if it wasn't more expensive to ship it back to Amazon.
