don't buy!

Every time I tried to open it my NOOK would freeze up. I finally had to delete it for my NOOK to function properly again. I really wanted to give it -5 stars.

    Broken

    Until this book is fixed, do not purchase. It is either incomplete (it appears to contain only the book cover) or it is formatted incorrectly (the content won't display).

    Don't bother with the Nook version

    I was excited to have my old friend in the Nook version but was disappointed to find it cumbersome an difficult to use. Give me pages to turn for this book. I have other reference books in the Nook version and found Bartlette's to be an exception - not Nook friendly.

    Don't buy

    I made the mistake of ignoring the other reviews. The book freezes up whenever you try to open it. Even restarting the Nook will not help.
