For now it's a great format! Easily switch from desktop to tablet. I really like the highlighting and note-taking ability with this “not normal” Kindle format.
The only downside so far is that apparently the book contains "overlays" which did not change to this format (p. 168). Basically just the page, without the overlay sheets (books say there are four). This is a big gap in the sample data.
