    Technical Issues! Hard Copy - best choice!!!

    Buy the hard copy! The nook version of this book has limitations - it is not supported on iPhone, and passages are cut off, thus, leaving you answer questions without having the appropriate info. Had to wait for 3 weeks (giving gracefully 2-week period for the company to address the issue) when BN told me they couldn't do anything about it, so, eventually I had to re-order a hard copy. Save your time and hassle!!!
