The book would have been great except that the NookBook edition does not contain all of the essays. There is nothing stating this anywhere on the BN or Cengage website. Essays that are unavailable are simply omitted with a block that says "Text not available due to copyright" I normally advocate ebooks whenever possible, but it seems Cengage has omitted some fairly necessary information here.
