A unique editionReviewed in the United Kingdom on 25 November 2010
Among all the editions of As you Like It, this one is surely unique and a must for anyone who is planning to direct it. As well as a pretty comprehensive stage history, there's also footnotes explaining how past productions tackled the various problems the play presents. It's slightly out-of-date, as there's been several productions since it was written, but otherwise first-class.

A useful book transferred non-functionally to KindleReviewed in the United States on 25 June 2011
I've used books from this series before. But I've used them as printed books, in which the original text and modern English text was placed on facing pages. Somehow I thought it would work the same way in the Kindle edition. It doesn't. In this Kindle edition, the printed book's page breaks are not maintained, so all the text simply flows to fit the device display upon which you're viewing it. You can't look at the original text and the modern "translation" side-by-side (which is the primary point of this book), nor can you read through an original text scene then proceed to that same scene in modern English text (which might have been a poor substitute for the original side-by-side intention). And you can't read through the entire play in either original text or modern translation. All the text simply flows, with sections of original text followed by sections of translated text in what feels like a random pattern (but I suspect the original printed book's page breaks may have been maintained, but not indicated, in the Kindle edition). The result is a book that is neither readable nor useful. Someone should have looked at it before offering it for sale. It is an embarrassment to the publisher and the reseller (Amazon). Very discouraging.

May read poorly on some KindlesReviewed in the United States on 3 November 2018
This version is mangled and difficult to read on my Kindle Paperwhite (6th Generation). Lines of text are broken up randomly. The footnotes are helpful though, for understanding. Might be a paper only kind of book.
