Don't waste you're money as you may not be able to view it or get a refund. Reminds me why I love real books... At least I would be able to read it.

Excuse me, but how exactly is the book unreadable. Is it in Japanese?

The example on the cover is konbanwa, a word which a) means "good evening" and b) is pronounced CONE bahn wah rather than cone BUN wa. Sheesh.
