Five star book deserving only four stars

As a passionate language learner I love this book: hook, worm and line, or how was the old proverb? For me as the inventor of the concept Revolution of Learning (as a derivative of Amazon's well-deserved epitet of Revolution of Reading for Kindle) this book together with other of its kind is a true banner. The notion itself is exemplified and explained in http://www.askokorpela.fi/MyeBooks/MyeBooks.htm.

The big thing in this book by Henry Ray is the all over format of the book, an ingeniuous mixture of grammar and really necessary words and expressions. Together with detailed live table of contents the book is a handy source of reference to which I already have returned several times.

A small, but in my opinion very important innovation is the change to page numbering, also in table of ccpntent where it gives to reader a good touch of the structure and prportions of the text, which the ebooks have been lacking in handicap to paper books. Not any more as far as Amazon continues this paractice.

If so revolutionary, why then only four stars and not five? Because this book is not properly finished. There are an incredible number of typos and at least as many inconsistencies of form and structure. For instance in tables for formating the text. Why so narrow tables? In many places forcing the text into cell prisons and leaving more than half of the page empty. It makes even short expressions to be presented on three lines, not beautiful, uneven breadth of colums without any visible logical reason. Ugly, ugly, ugly, just the opposite of the aim and purpose of the concept of this ingenious language guide format. Another inconsistency is order of languages: Italian - English, English - Italian It varies inconsequenly giving an impression of uncareful finishing.

Still for Amazon to improve: please introduce boldly the only sensible timestamp of yyyymmdd to be used in bookmarks etc. Several businesses have introduced it, why not also Amazon?

Feedback to Amazon

My 'Revolution in Learning' MyeBooks system enables notes on errors. Please find at least twenty of them in the otherwise excellent book by Ray: Italian in 21 days. MyeBooks Ray-Italian
