    Good in theory but....

    I got this ebook because i was looking to cut weight while traveling through south east asia. The content of the book is what it is.

    My problems is with the electronic format in 2 ways.
    1. The file is so large that it constantly crashes my nook. I dont know how many times ive been sitting at a bus or train station early in the morning or late at night rebooting my nook 5 or 6 times just to get an address. Super frusterating

    2. Navigation is very difficult. Travel books are constantly opened closed and written on. The e version doesnt make this easy. Also the maps are too low resolution to be useful.

    Number 2 would be bearable if there wasnt the crashing problem.

    Please note my rating is only for the electronic format
