I own the print version of this book, also. Wanted a digital version on my Mac and iPod Touch for convenience. I chose the eReader format rather than Kindle for two reasons. First, at this point Kindle Reader does not support search on the Touch, nor the ability to copy text. Same is true for the beta version of Kindle's PC reader, and the Mac version of Kindle reader has not been released yet. Second, I already have another Filemaker title in the Kindle reader format and wanted to try the BN eReader format. While I like the eReader on both the Touch and the PC (using Windows in Fusion on my Mac) better than the Kindle readers, the conversion of this book is awful. Linked text is presented out of place (the header for paragraphs in the intro section is at the start of the following paragraph). Throughout the title, linked text is presented at the end of sentences or paragraphs, rather than in context. The result is a very confusing reading experience. Additionally, the presentation of figures is a mess. Referenced figures do not appear anywhere close to the reference in many cases, and may in some cases actually be completely missing. In some cases clicking on a link to a figure, takes you to another location in the text, but not to the figure it references. I really like the ability to search within the title, highlighting and notes, as well as the copy function in the Mac version. For reading fiction, I think either reader would be great. For reference works, such as "Filemaker Pro 10 In Depth", searching, highlighting, notes and copy are a huge advantage. Had I known, however, how difficult it would be to read the eReader version of this book, I would have chosen the Kindle version, even at its slightly higher price. "The Filemaker Pro 10 Bible" on the Kindle reader is presented much better than this book is. Hopefully Barnes & Noble will correct the problems with the book or the software, whichever is causing these issues, because when I'm ready to buy a dedicated reader, I really like the looks of the Nook better than the Kindle, but almost all the books I would buy would be computer related references, and I can't buy the printed version, just so I can read the ebook without getting confused.
