I read the sample from Amazon and was underwhelmed, and then I saw a print copy at the library and found out why. The book is heavily illustrated with photos, diagrams, and cartoons, and the text depends on them to tell the story. Without at least better b&w screen resolution, on Kindle it would be useless. So glad I didn't download to read the whole thing before realizing how much I'd be missing! I'm not even sure if it would be obvious on the Kindle that there was that much missing in the experience - it might just seem like a really bad book.
