Import note about PDF reader software
The good news about PDF reader software is that most destop and notebook computers have little trouble displaying large, graphically intensive files like the one for this book. Acrobat Reader version 7 or later is recommended.
The PDF file for this book displays very effectively on my iPad 1 v.4.3.3 firmware using the GoodReader app v.3.8.0. GoodReader far surpasses all of the other PDF reader iPad apps that I have tested. Apps that I do NOT recommend for reading this file on an iPad include: iBooks, PDF HD, PDF Expert, PDFReader, and ReaddleDocs. Some of these apps render the pages so slowly as to make the book almost unusable on an iPad. The GoodReader iPad app has a two-speed rendering engine and in its fast mode the page load times are almost as good as on some desktop computers.
