I bought the Kindle version of this book for a class. The formatting appears to be true to the book but is difficult to read on my PC, so after a week of eye strain, I researched and bought a Kindle Paperwhite (which has the best rating to prevent eye strain). After waiting a week for it to arrive, I tried to download my textbook, and learned that it is not compatible with my Kindle. The Kindle edition is not compatible with a Kindle device!
So I tried to download my other textbook. It is not compatible with my Kindle either. I came back to the Amazon pages for these books, and discovered there is a little arrow that says what devices are compatible. The books are compatible with computers and Kindle devices which aren't the Paperwhite--Kindle devices which are suited for videos rather than reading.
Yes, the note was there in fine print if I would have used the drop down arrow. When I bought them I had planned to use them with my PC. Now I'm out more than $300 for books which are hard to read in the Kindle version and for a Kindle that doesn't work with the Kindle books I purchased expressly for the purpose of reading my textbooks for school.
My normal Amazon experiences have been good, but my Kindle experiences have been terrible.
