The text is great, but the draw for a book like this is the ability to read and practice. Reading on a nook color, it lacks the ability to zoom pictures to increase definition and detail for actual practice. Put this option into the book and it will get 5 stars but without, I may as well read internet resources for the ability to zoom.
