Sadly, this e-book is badly formatted for the Nook. The page size does not fill the Nook screen making the type appear very small on the page. Increasing the font size is not an option and when you tap or use your fingers to zoom in you end up reading a half of a page that is strangely cropped. This is sad because the book is very well written with wonderful photos and illusyrations.
