Alright content perhaps but no TOC
on April 15, 2011
I purchased this kindle book as a companion to a travel guide for an upcoming visit to Turkey. It appears to have just the right amount of detail to understand the history without being overwhelmed with detail. However, I quickly discovered that it has no table of contents to help flip to a desired location. I.e., if you would like to read about Ephesus, you can't easily flip to the Ephesus section except through the "search this book for a word", which produces too many dozens of hits. I also entered other less-common locations which it did not contain. I am sure the content is good, if not especially thorough, but I am going to try to return it as I hoped to more easily reference background on locations I intend to visit. This work, published for Kindle without a TOC, may be an informative read (I don't know) but it seems it would be of limited use to have along on a trip.
