I could not open it, and it only showed a blank page.

It opens, but there is nothing on the page. There is a table of contents, and you can change the page, but you're still only looking at blank pages.

I recently downloaded this book and had not tried to read it till today. Imagine my surprise when I found nothing but blank pages!! I called customer service 1-800-843-2665, which is routed through the Phillip!!! This is something you don't expect when purchasing a Nook from BN, had I know they out sourced I would have skipped the whole purchase!!! As useual the person was hard to understand and was no help!! He said he was able to successfully download this book on his nook and suggested I go somewhere with a strong WiFi signal, archive the book and then re-download. GREAT!! I'm homebound! I've not had this problem with any other download!! The problem lies with this book. I would like to have this book!!! True it was only .99 but it is .99 better in my pocket than wasted on a false promise. I will think twice about future downloads and check the reviews. This is a common problem with this book. I am not the only person to find NOTHING BUT BLANK PAGES!!! aND BEFORE i CAN POST THIS i HAVE TO RATE A BOOK THAT IS NOT THERE? VERY WELL, I'LL GIVE AS LITTLE AS POSSIBLE CAUSE THAT'S WHAT THEY GAVE ME!!!

I have been unable to open this book on my Nook. Appears to download but is of no use - can not access any pages within the book. Would like to give a zero.

I'm supposed to have 40 pages. Shouldn't it take more than 40 pages to have all that's mentioned in the description? Besides, HOW DO YOU READ 40 BLANK PAGES??? THIS NEEDS TO BE FIXED, OR REFUNDS GIVEN.

My experience has been the same I have the new nook color and have never had any of the books open with blank pages it is surely a problem, only with this one book which I really would love to use. B&N suggested to archive the book then unarchive it but that isn't working either.

There is a problem with this book. It says I have downloaded it, but I can't find it in my nook. I would like to have this sample book.

I was unable to download at all, got an error message that 'Reader cannot open this type of book'; so it's sort of taken care of, but why is it still on the list of available titles?!
Anonymous More than 1 year ago
I agree with the other reviewers. The book opened to a blank page 1 and I could not advance to other pages. I easily received a refund from B&N. 0 starts for the book, but good service on the refund.

I just got my Nook last week and i'm still learning how to use it. Unfortunately, there seem to a few problems with diwnloads and synch-ing. This book is one of them.

So from what I hve readthis book is not promising! You can either get nothing for a book, or yoi can get a great helpful book. But either way, it is really .99 cents, or a dollor... So in my opinion, it is cheep and you can delete it easily. It cost hardly anything, so whats the fuss?!?!
