The actual physical copy is about the size of a New York City phone book (kids, Google it). There were a number of texts in the book that, when you flip to them, there's just a link to a web text. Sometimes the links work, but on a couple of occasions they were broken and had to be altered.
The only real selling point is it had the entire Zane Grey novel, "Riders of the Purple Sage." Other than that, it's heavy, inaccurate, and hard to thumb through.
