Do not purchase the nook edition. There are major formatting errors, missing symbols, and incorrect characters in many of the equations. Some are formatted as text and others as images, but either way there are errors. The ones that are imagesare tiny and you can't enlare them. Not every chapter is full of equations, but the ones that are have so many errors they are hard to read. It's a good book overall. Just make sure you get the printed version, not the piece of garbage they ship for he nook.
