The book itself is very good. However, the e-version does not have rights to a surprisingly large number of images (therefore, they are not included) which I found very disappointing. I would highly suggest AGAINST the Nook version of this book. Go for the textbook.

Great diagrams and summaries -- more comprehensive than those found in review books, so a better starting point.
