The Nook book is missing all the steps, diagrams and pictures of each yoga position. It is missing approximately half the book. It list the various yoga postions and has one small picture of what it looks like, but no instructions or comments. I have not seen the paper edition, which sounds good. Forget the Nook edition.

I went to Barnes and Noble to view the hard copy and it looked awesome... So I searched for a nook version, for convience... I made an impulse purchase without looking for reviews (bad decision).. The graphics and images are horribly pixelated, the content is less in comparison to the hard copy' and the overall aesthetic sucks... I am beyond disappointed, there should be a refund policy.. I want my money back.. I really feel that the nook version shouldn't be offered for sale in the condition that it is in... Steer clear of this version!!!!!!!!

Downloaded the sample. Got the forward, intro etc., just text I really would like to see how the pose page shows up on the NOOK. Can you view the pose and the pertinent info on a screen, or is it chopped up and hard to view and put together??? That is what I was hoping to find in the Sample. Gave nook sample 1 star. The Sample was of zero value to me. I love the hardcopy but need to see how user friendly it is in NOOK land.
