    Pages cut off

    Just purchased this for my nook and many passages are cut off by the end of a page. A big technical problem and a huge rip off. They need to fix this or give a refund.

    We bought the hard copy of this book prior to our 6 week trip to China.  Lots of useful info that helped us a lot in planning our trip.  Due to its size we decided to also buy the eBook version to have on our Nooks. Big mistake! After paying $17.99 for it we then discovered that unlike the real book the eBook contains NO Chinese symbols which is a huge disadvantage when trying to find buses, trains etc or buying tickets where no one speaks English.  The other huge failing of the eBook is that all of the maps are totally useless since they are too small to see and cannot be enlarged.  Overall we felt ripped off buying the eBook, please keep this in mind if, like us, you are tempted to get it to save on space.  It really is of limited use and a waste of money..
