How to rate a book? Always tough. Frankly, I like the content of the book. I'm taking issue here with the format. I bought this book as a digital edition. I read digital editions on the Kindle reader app on my PC and my Samsung tablet and the Kindle editions work very well. This book is provided as an Adobe Digital edition. It is very poorly implemented. It is very hard to resize the edition to read it properly. The Adobe app works only on my PC, not on the tablet, so I can only read my book purchase on one of my devices. Every time the Adobe app comes up on the PC, it is the same standard size, ignoring my settings from the last time I was reading. Searching the purchase does not work well. In short, Adobe Digital Editions have a long way to go to even begin to approach the ease of use of Amazon. Why did anyone even bother implementing this book in Adobe? It was a waste and I'm very disappointed in having paid over $25 for something that works so poorly.
