Fantastic book but not so great electronic version
Let me start by saying that I think this is a fantastic book and possibly the best out there for you baby's first year. (Disclaimer: I am an expectant mom and I have not tried any of their suggestion but it make me feel better prepare when I read his book knowing it is from a trusted source) In fact, I like it so much that after buying the paper version, I bought the electronic version so I can have it when I travel and I don't want to cary the brick (paper) version. But, and here is the but: the formatting of the electronic version is very annoying and less than convenient. I know why they did this. It's be use it is setup like a picture book with all the image/text integration... But my problem with this is that it is very difficult to navigate, you can't change font size, you can't highlight anything, the bookmarks are not so great, and you can't just look at a simple table of content...
I have the other Mayo Clinic book on pregnancy and the electronic formatting is a lot more user friendly. This is also a great book and it lets me do electronically everything the baby book doesn't.
I will wrap up by saying that this book is a must have for any new moms out there, but don't wait to read this after you have the baby. There will be no time (I hear) and it's about 600 pages long. So far I have not felt like skipping any subjects. Everything is so relevant!
