I have found this set of Soncino Talmud for Kindle very helpful in my research and getting a better knowledge and understanding of Judaism.The translation is accurate, although the Soncino Edition has been carefully editored to remove passages that could be seen as offensive to non-Jewish readers. Some of these editorial changes are as simple as some words being changed, or later additions to the footnotes. But you would only pick this up if you have a knowledge of the Hebrew version.
The tabs at the right hand side make it very easy to navigate between the folios and to find any particular referance.There is also the ability to highlight passages and bookmark them for further reference.
I will be adding the other volumes as they hopefully become available in the future.The pricing makes these volumes very affordable for anyone.
It has the folio pages in the table contents which makes each folio easily accessibly. This is normally a large set of volumes so it is wonderful to be able to carry it easily. The notes are in the text at the bottom of the page. You have the wonderful Soncino translation and easily accessible text for 99 cents the right price. You have wonderful tool that gives access to the Talmud in your hand without the weight of all the all the volumes.
Very good translation from a prior generation. Still readable. One star off for the footnote hyperlinks not working (at least on the iOS reader). Also does not have the Hebrew and English in parallel as more recent translations do. But it's a great price and it's a convenient way to skim and look up.
