  • Not a good eBook.

    This is basically a PDF. Absolutely terrible experience, and not worth the effort. A normal eBook would flow text on the screen automatically, allowing you to change size and color for your comfort. This PDF allows for none of that. You have to zoom in on the text, which is tiny and doesn’t fit on a phone screen very well. And it’s only ever black on white; no night mode, no sepia. Just awful—everything good about ebooks is stripped away and replaced with tedious page layouts. Also, there are several QR codes to link you to online resources. Are there hyperlinks you can just tap on? No. So I guess I have to get another phone to point at my phone to get the URL, then copy the URL back to my phone? Just dumb. Really disappointing, and really poorly done. I just want a normal, readable eBook, not a PDF. Form follows function. Pretty page layouts that are unreadable are utterly worthless.
  • Great content, Not iBook font supported.

    I love the content in this book. It is very well written and informative, and has lots of great illustrations. The author did a great job writing the first generation and he far out does himself in writing this second generation. I am extremely satisfied with the content. What is not so great is there is no font or background color support for this book in the iBook reader. I am using an iPhone to read this book and each page is displayed in full which requires zooming in to enlarge the text and scrolling down the columns of the page. Then to change pages one has to zoom back out to the full page and then swiping left. Books that are font supported in iBooks fill the page with text and requires a simple swipe to the left to continue. Also the background color is white and text is black which makes it difficult for me to read at night and there is no way to change this. This is why I only give three stars for the review. If this book had iBook font and background color support I would rate it five stars.
