The book is well written and informative. However it is painful to read on my IPad with the Nook app. The font is so small it is very difficult to see. I would not recommend this book in the electronic form. I have not seen the paper book so I cannot comment on it's readability.

I made the mistake of purchasing this book without reading user reviews. The Nook is unreadable. The font is too small and does not scale to a larger more readable font

This Nook version is unreadable.  The font is micro and not adjustable.
