Very frustrating reading this book!!! I would get to certain places in the book and it would throw me back to a chapter ive previously read...for example when i would get to page 333 and hit to go to next page it would put me back to page 318..also it skips from page 364 to page 374..information in the book is great just frustrating to have to type in the next page number you want to read!
