    Unreadable

    The transfer to digital format is HORRIBLE. The text is 90% symbols and gibberish; completely unreadable. Which is upsetting because I was really looking forward to this book. With such terrible quality-control, I'm glad this was free. I just wish I could have actually been able to read it.
