Great book but ebook edition could use some support.

This is a very solid overview of the basics of home buying. Has to cover a lot of ground so some things are not covered deeply enough. But the book provides a good foundation for the whole process and your mortgage broker, lender and real estate agent will be able to fill you in on details. For example: book tells a bit about condo associations and the need for FHA approval of the association's stability and resources before FHA loan can be done but my potential lender said that a condo loan could also be a no-go if the association does not meet that particular lender's standards.
What I have found is that the book provides a list of things that need to done in general and the reader will discover what they need to research further for a particular purchase situation.
Took a chance on the ebook version and kind of miss the option of having the forms on CD and being able to read and write on the worksheets but then I do have an Ipod Touch. I am sure the graphics and worksheets would show up clearer on a device with a larger screen (Kindle or Ipad).
