    By Crazy tester
    I bought this app thinking it would be amazing. It isn't, actually i don't know if it is any good because it crashes before i can see a single word of the book. Don't waste your money wait for an update if there will be one if there isn't i want my money back! This has thoroughly annoyed me.

    I can't even open this book through I-books. Fix or I want my money back! Reviews of the book have been good but I've not even been able to read one page! I'm annoyed I have to give it even one star!

    Same story cannot open as constantly kicks me out to home screen. Shame as I owned original paperback very diss appointed with iTunes now.
  • Great in book form, not in digital.

    By jayson82
    Get it sorted iTunes, everytime I try and read it I get booted back to the main screen and can't access the book to read. And in my invoice when I try to report a problem with this it states cannot connect to iTunes store, funnily enough I can purchase just not complain.
  • Great Book:- Ruined by publisher

    By Pitt Monqui
    I bought this book when it was first published and it is a fantastic source of information. Unfortunately the transition to digital has not gone well and this iBook is unreadable on my iPhone 4, crashing within 10 seconds of opening. A look on the forums shows this to be a common trait with HarperCollins publications. I hope this gets fixed soon as I'd like to give "Lofty" the 5 stars he deserves.
