Ebook terrible formatting Absolutely terrible formatting of ebook.As seen by pictures, tables are cut off, sometimes columns are somehow rearranged so a “left to right” reference comparisons means absolutely nothing when the whole thing is split on multiple pages.My professor gives us page references to look at specific content. That is not available like a normal pdf ebook should have.Highlighting helps to see what’s missing on the sides, but I’m not about to go highlight the whole book just to read…

Typos There are too many typos in this book. This is only one example I have on hand.

LIBRO USADO-LIKE NEW El libro en general está excelente para ser usado, pero me disgustó haber encontrado la mitad de un chicle entre las páginas. Lo fotografié para evidenciar mi argumento y lo tomen como sugerencia para sus próximas ventas. Nuevamente le dejo saber que el libro está como nuevo, páginas bien cuidadas, al momento no vi escritos o marcas con “highlighter”.
