Very poorly formatted
Have to agree with other reviewer this is terribly formatted for anything smaller than an IPad. This was a gift so I cannot get a refund else I would. Publisher: you are damaging the author with this stupidity.
iPhone users be forewarned
Please be advised this book is formatted with a fixed and exceedingly small font, legal disclaimer sized, I’d say.
Publisher, please take note, the book isn’t serviceable for me in your arbitrarily assigned tiny font size. I would implore you to please consider reformatting this book to a version with adjustments available to font sizes and styles.
