Just starting the book and I haven't downloaded many technical manuals with screen shots. The text can easily be enlarged but the screen shots can't. You can get a pretty good idea what the screen shots represent but it was hard for me to believe that the quality of the shots is so poor. I think this may be a common shortcoming with ebooks.
