I was so excited to read this book, however, it said nowhere in the description that this book can NOT be read on a mobile device or on a nook simple touch. Fortunately, I also have a Nook Color and the books seems to have loaded correctly on that. I wish Barnes & Noble had put in the description that even the text on this book would not be able to accessed (I totally understand that the videos wouldn't be accessible on a simple touch).

It's important to note that this content is NOT supported by the Nook Glow device. I learned that after my purchase.  So sad.   It's a wonderful book that, as an Instructional Coach, I recommend to all my teaching staff.
