This e-book is so fraught with spelling, spacing, and even factual errors that I am sorry I bought it. For example, "at the game time" appears instead of "at the same time." Also, Benjamin Franklin's name is given as Benjamin Ferdinand even though Franklin is used correctly later in the text. This e-book was hastily written with no spell checking or proof reading. This is my first attempt at reading a well-known work in e-book format, and I vow never to buy another such e-book unless it is from a reputable publishing house.
