As of todays date the book loads and works.5 star

Very nice to have the extras videos and example animations in this digital version of this book. I use it with the printed copy. It’s also nice to have this iBook vs, that works on my Mac, iPads, and iPhone, making it easier to study in the dark!55

Loved it5 star

Had the book already which is amazing, and the videos just make it better. Note: Noticed some comments about videos issues. They work perfectly for me, so they have probably been fixed.55

Videos fixed5 star

Originally, I wrote a review giving 3 stars because the videos were broken... Shortly after the videos were fixed.. so either they updated the book or it, just for some reason, started working by itself? Anyway, really good book.55


Videos don't play3 star

The videos don't play on the complete version of the book (on ipad air 2 IOS10), but the do play on the sample version of the book. Please fix this issue35


Videos in paid version are not working2 star

I bought this hoping I can get further instruction in animation, and the videos do not play so I can't hear or see what the instructor is saying.25
