This edition merges many paragraphs, making it more difficult to read than the original, and there are no chapter divisions. It's been made into a messy condensed book, only a fraction of the original set.
-- It begins with Chapters 19-22 of Volume I of the 2-volume set. (In the 4-volume set, it's in Volume II). So right away there's a problem. You can't start a biography in the middle.
-- On Kindle Page 33 it jumps to an incident much later, in 1815.
-- Then Page 36 jumps back to cover Chapters 24-25.
-- As nearly as I can figure, Kindle Pages 57-62 jump around to various locations I couldn't match.
-- Then Pages 62-88 cover Chapters 14-15.
At best it's probably 7% of the original, and not the best selections.
However, this is an exception to this most exceptional series of biographies written by the brothers Jacob and John Abbott in the mid-nineteenth century.
I was pleased for the fact that I was just interested in knowing more about him but wasn't overly impressed either.
The original version of this book, I am convinced, was a much more extensive portrayal of one of history's most controversial leaders. For those who know nothing about Napoleon, it is much better to select one of the more complete bios that develop the personality as well as the leader, his times and his qualities. There are many available.
