Basically a website that you pay to access then, not a book.

That will be in their new range: "Stupid ideas, badly implemented"
These books are great for people who are learning about culture. They’re not full of jargon and break down complicated concepts very well.
I have the film, sociology, literature, psychology and philosophy hardback copies.
They’re an excellent series which makes learning accessible.
Thanks @pasheast we have added this to the Highlights pages

Hardback says it all!
I'm trying to read A Beevor - D Day.
Impossible to understand without referring back to the maps regularly which is almost impossible in an e- book.
After I finally get to the end it'll be fiction only for me with e-books.
Stick to hardback for non-fiction!
I really like this series of books and have the tech and science ones.
That being said, I also have a Kindle which I think is a great device, but its not very good for this kind of book where you want to be able to flick back and forth and it has lots of diagrams. For those kinds of of books, or reference books, I think hard copy is superior.
Also same price on Apple Books store, should be full colour page version. Easier to flick through than kindle ebook
What's the big oidea?
I purchased this but don't see on my kindle or on my phone kindle app. Anyone else?
