Hey Yaheyjazi —

Thank you for the kind comments and for letting me know about your experiences with the iBook —

On our end, because the paperback version has an unusual, non-linear layout, we have two options for turning it into an eBook —

1) Redesign the book from scratch specifically for eBooks

2) Release a fixed-layout eBook version of the paperback (which brings with it the disadvantages you mentioned)

Unfortunately, at this time the cost and time required for the first option, combined with the relatively small market for eBook LSAT textbooks, prevents #1 from being a viable option.

So, on our end, it was a choice of releasing a fixed-layout eBook or none at all, and we decided to release the fixed-layout version, despite the disadvantages.

Down the line, we may be able to make a few improvements, such as possibly creating a linked table of contents — but there won’t be any major changes made for a while.

We do mention this in the book description and sell the book at a reduced price (relative to the paperback) because of these restrictions, but I realize that doesn’t do you a whole lot of good.

I also want to mention in case you have access to an iPad that viewing the book on one can improve your experience quite a bit. I imagine you would have already tried that if you could but just wanted to throw that out there.

Sorry again for the frustrations you are having, and thank you again for telling me about them — if there is any way I can make it up to you, let me know —
