I would rate this book a 5 for content (I have the print copy as well), and a 1 for the eBook version. The content: The approach to Hebrew is great. A nice mixture of vocabulary, grammar, and idioms at every step of the way. Explanations are very clear. The conversations in each chapter tie it all together nicely, and are challenging enough to keep it interesting. Might be a little too challenging, though, for some absolute beginners. The eBook version: On most devices (such as the Nook Simple Touch or the iPhone Nook reader) the Hebrew writing is barely legible, and there is no way to enlarge it. If you enlarge the English font, the Hebrew stays the same, tiny, size. This is because the eBook edition uses images, rather than an embedded font, for the Hebrew writing. This is unacceptable, and something that I would hope B&N would remedy soon.
