I revised this review February 7, 2012. I have amended my original rating of 3 stars all the way to 5. The companion CD issue has been completely resolved to my total satisfaction. Read my attached addendum below for a full explanation and useful directions to obtain the CD content.Originally titled "Not Kind to the Kindle User"I purchased this book as kind of an experiment. I wanted to see how I would like using it on a Kindle. As anyone who uses many reference books knows, they can be bulky and hard to manage. Having them on the Kindle seemed to be a good idea and it does take care of the bulky and hard to manage problem, but seeing the graphical figures has it's difficulties on a Kindle as they are kind of small and a bit out of focus. Also the paper version of this book comes with a companion CD which is not provided with the Kindle version, nor is there a site where one can download the CD's contents. The book is well written and full of good information as far as I can tell, but I feel ripped of concerning the lack of the CD. I tried resolving this by contacting , the publisher and the author. No help from anyone. did offer to remove the book from my Kindle and refund my money or send me the paper book and CD. I decided to muddle on as the author does tell you where you can download various free programs, etc. which he included on the CD, but this must be discovered as you you read through the book. I may just be being nit-picky, but I would have preferred to have been provide everything I thought I was paying for instead of being given extra work. My honest opinion is that neither the publisher or even considered the CD situation when publishing the Kindle version, so nothing was done to cover that issue.
