    The ebook version contains cutoff tables, charts and pictures

    The content is thorough, but I was incredibly disappointed that every table, chart and image was cut off in the ebook. I have to go look at a hardcopy version to see the many things I missed. There were also navigation issues when reading the book, especially between chapters. I don't recommend the ebook and regret the money I spent on it.
