  • Big, but not as big as another reviewer said

    By Don A7
    Under “List" in my iBooks library this shows as 489.8 MB. That must include the movies, as I can view both the book and the embedded movies even when in Airplane mode. Before I reinstalled the iPad iBooks app, the iBooks app was not showing this book as DOWNLOADED. While I was traveling but charging my iPad, the iPad iBooks app redownloaded this book and another very large book while using cellular data. Deleting the iPad iBooks app, totally filling up the iPad, powering off the iPad and powering on then making room for the iPad iBooks app and reinstalling iBooks and downloading my books fixed that and the books now show as DOWNLOADED. (While in Store mode, click on the Purchased tab on the lower right and make sure books on your device show as DOWNLOADED instead of the cloud and arrow.) I am partway through the book and enjoying looking at the world in a totally different manner

    This is a good book, I have the 1979 edition. However, this books size is 50gig which makes it impossible to view on my iPad. Waste of $, a warning would of been nice.
