1.0 out of 5 stars Title misrepresents content when it comes to the electronic version! Nov. 15 2014
By Richard Cleveland - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
If you need the supplemental content drawing as stated in the "with Drawings" do not get the e-textbook, you are unfortunately forced to waste paper. I would be better if they would remove electronic verson of this item from the book store and stick solely with the version that does not state "with Drawings".

Very disappointed when we are all trying to preserve natural resources.
