    Ebook file corrupted

    I wish I could review the book itself - this is a warning to anyone downloading the ebook that for over a month I could not get the file to open correctly. The publisher did not send a new file or attempt to correct the download. I am waiting for my refund from B&N as we speak. I hope B&N takes the file down until it is corrected.
