In spite of the dire warnings by most reviewers, I decided to order the Kindkle version of this great book because, in my experience, even very small print is quite readable on the Kindle Fire, as a result of the intense contrast between the very dark, very well-formed letters and the luminous white background. My guess proved correct, as I can read the one-page list of the conjugated forms without difficulty, on the Fire. On the other hand, on my Kindle Touch, the lists are virtually illegible with the naked eye. However, even on the Kindle Touch, the text comes out very bold and very well-formed in the electronic ink, so that, if you use a magnifying glass, you can read the lists without any difficulty.
I gave this ebook 5 stars because of its quality: the one-page lists are great for making comparisons and for overall review. Moreover, the authors' comments and explanations, all of them in large print in the Kindle version [for a welcome change], are invaluable. As an added bonus, to my knowledge, this is the only book on Italian verbs that provides the whole conjugation of "andarsene," which, as you may know, is an extremely common and useful verb in everyday Italian but is very tricky for students, who generally have great difficulty using and placing the reflexive forms and the adverbial particle [ne] correctly, especially in the negative and in the imperative.
Finally, I want to comment on the statement by one of the reviewers, in the sense that you can't access the conjugations on this Kindle version unless you turn over the pages one by one. This is an incorrect and misleading statement. This Kindle version has a Table of Contents (in blue on the Fire) from where you can directly access any verb you choose.
To sum up, if you have a Kindle Fire, don't pass up this great book in its Kindle version. Moreover, if you don't mind carrying a magnifying glass with you, you'll be able to use this Kindle version, as a reference, also on the Kindle Touch.
