This book has a ton of good and useful information, but unfortunately it is very poor Nook book. I just spent 44 minutes on the phone w/B&N customer support, trying to find out whether or not Nook users can enlarge or zoom in on illustrations. The answer is no. This poses a real problem for Nook users with this book, as there are a number of line drawings and illustrations (as well as one chart on pg. 145) in which the accompanying text is too small to be read. Enlarging the font only affects the actual book text, of course, so unless you want to use a magnifying glass to view these illustrations, you're pretty much hosed. There is also a "content issue," which was confirmed by B&N CS. The book shows up as having 208 pages on my Nook. However, within the text, there are multiple references to pages over 400. The hard copy has 432 pages. So apparently nearly half of this book does not download. The CS guy also had 208 pages in his download. I'm really disappointed that I won't be able to use this book on my Nook. As I said, it has a lot of useful information. Perhaps if the content and illustration issues are resolved, it might be ok. But I'll be buying the hardcopy of this book once my refund comes in from B&N.
