However, the quality and benefits of the exercises themselves is unquestionable. Even if you can't follow the whole "program" or if you don't fully grasp all of the exercises and you can only do one of the exercises, you will benefit greatly. In this hectic paced world, these exercises help you to look inward and improve your relationship with God.
The usability of this particular electronic and/or kindle version of "Spiritual Exercises" is problematic. First, the page numbers are inaccurate. Fortunately, however, there is a table of contents. But the table of contents does not have icons that you can click on to jump to a page. You must type in the page number for whatever chapter you want to view, and even then, like I said, the page numbers are inaccurate, albeit slightly. For example, if it says page 19 in the TOC the chapter might begin a few pages before after.
Second, the actual text is poorly formatted. In other words, paragraphs are not paragraphs and sentences are broken up, lines are skipped. It is as though someone kept hitting the Return key as they inputted the text. I am led to wonder who did the inputting and what mechanism the Amazon people have for inputting books.
Good news. There doesn't seem to be many grammar or spelling errors.
