The information in this book is excellent, but the Kindle formatting is atrocious and makes it useless from a reference point of view. The contents list is incomplete, not referencing the indices. The chapters don’t start on a new page, the opening sntence is adrift from the first letter. Sentences within paragraphs are broken for no reason, and sometimes start new paragraphs in the middle of the sentence. The indices of authors and titles do not link at all back to the book, and the page numbers indicated either don’t exist or do not contain the information. In addition the authors list doesn’t have a separate line for each author but runs them in together. And some of the text is red for no reason.
I have never encountered such appalling formatting, even in very cheap or free Kindle reprints. If it weren’t for the fact that the content is good, I would have returned this book for a refund. The publishers should be ashamed of themselves.
