Horrible if you're using this for a classroom environment, one of the worst ebooks I've had the misfortune of using.

The short list of problems with this edition:
-The table of contents only lists parts and not individual papers
-The page numbers are completely out of sync with the physical version of the fifth edition
-For whatever reason trying to find individual readings and papers with the search function is fruitless
-The editor's introduction of each reading is not separated from the reading itself by any change in font or even a space. It just flips from the editor's introduction to the reading itself without any indication and you have to look for clues to see where, like citations that are after the publication of the reading itself.

This is on top of all of the traditional hurdles you have to overcome when using a kindle version of a textbook (which I'm used to.) If you're getting for a class, just save yourself some trouble and grab the physical edition.

I would not rent this book on Kindle. The Table of Contents is unavailable. It is hard to find chapters and selections without it? Essential to a reader when you have to read the book in a non- linear manner. The page numbers do not coincide with printed edition thus it cannot be used for citing for academic writing. Also there is a clear distinction of the editor writing on the text and article chosen for each section. In the printed text there is a clear distinction between in fonts to show this differentiation. This is poorly laid for rental purposes. Stay away from renting this book for the classroom. better off buying a used version!

Needed this for a class. Was definitely interesting reads for the chapters we had to read. Any planner student should take a chance and look into this book (even at your library if they have it) Great planner book.
