    Good text, photos missing

    The text is updated from the original release. Too bad it was published in 2012 and not 2013 ... I'm sure the next edition will have a lot of new material regarding a Pope that resigns!

    Sadly the wonderful pictures from the physical book are missing from the Nook version. (lose a star for that)
