    Posting rants about the pricing are terribly unhelpful to anyone deciding if the content of the book is worth purchasing. Buyers can clearly tell what the price is. Airing petty grievances manipulates reviews and undermines the rating system. I wish BN would go through and cull reviews that do not review the book (including this one) so readers can know the most important aspects of the book- like is it a well written, well researched and informative read without digging through rubbish.

    OK but better choices out there

    It's nice to see more about Canada in the War of 1812, but it leaves out the South entirely (by the author's own admission). That's fine but buyers should be aware that they are getting a details study of one part of the war, not a comprehensive look. As a results, it's sometimes hard to figure out how Taylor's small slice fits into the wider North American and world picture. It's also very long for what it is.

    Not a bad boo, but not a great one either.

    The book is great. I read it on my Droid!

    At $28 for an ebook the history book business is going to dry up. Outrageous price! I borrowed the book from the local library and decided to get an e copy. I downloaded the book for $17 from a competitor. I will not pay B&N prices for ebooks. We purchasers have too many alternatives to be held in thrall by any one system.

    overpriced

    I am unable to review this book because it cost too much to buy in ebook format. Why does the nook ebook version cost so much? I decided NOT to buy it because of price. It cost $11 more than a Kindle version and it cost more than the hardback version. So what is going on with nookbooks anyway?

    Price

    Sorry to be one of those reviewers who gives one star because of the price. But why does this cost far more than what I could buy the print version for ?
