It is so terrible that you could not view this book in Ipad or other tablet device. When I tried the sample, it worked so well in my ipad, that hooks up the customer to buy it. But I figured out that any textbook is not working on the tablet device after I purchased it. So, if you are these kind of device user, do not buy this. There is no reason to be not working in the device, but I don't understand why they made to not working in the Ipad. It is horrible.
