Regarding the ebook format: I chose MOBI, which is a universal format that all ebook readers should display just fine. The images and image captions may not have transferred with full fidelity to the ebook format, but that's because I just did the conversion through Calibre. If you want to see all the pretty pictures, look at them in the PDF file. If you buy one, you buy both, so that's a great deal. I made an ebook version available because I know that PDF files don't always play nicely on ebook readers.
