Page size not optimized for iBook
The low rating is due to the page format of the book, not the content. I'm reading the book on an iPhone 6 plus and I cannot get the pages to display in full screen. It seems like the page width is too wide and prevents the page from filling the height of the screen without cutting off texts on the left and right side. Not being able to read the book in full screen is annoying and just unacceptable considering the cost of the book. Please fix it!
NOT an iBook it's a PDF!
Not optimized for ebooks at all. Feels like a giant PDF file that's been send around the web and back. Plus, you have to view it in landscape. Don't waste your money buy the hard copy. Shame on the publisher for releasing a 2001 format. This is 2015 this format should not be allowed in iBooks! It's really sad cuz the book is good but this format will consistently give it 1 star. What a waste of money!!!
Outstanding presentation, really enjoying the book. Wine Folly shines as usual in this comprehensive guide. Even introductory level information that I've already learned feels revitalized and new again through their compelling style of graphics and illustrations.
I think all levels of wine enthusiasts can find value in what Wine Folly has produced here.
The page layout on my 6+ is a little clunky---but it fits and flows just right on my iPad. And either way, its a totally fair price for the value in volume of information available here.
I look forward to a digital 'Wine Folly, World Atlas of Wine'! (Please!)
