For the best view of this eBook, I suggest: On your eBook reader, Turn the background from white to black (this will also turn the text to white) for less stress on your eyes. Photos just look better on a black background as well. I also suggest that you read this book in horizontal or side-by-side page mode, giving you more continuity in the book. When you want to see a photograph in a larger format, just rotate your reader to the vertical, or portrait, mode. Then move back to the horizontal, landscape, mode if you wish.

One of the greatest things about eBooks is the ability to go to Internet locations mentioned in the book in blue text or to a link within the book. Underlined blue links are hyperlinks to an Internet site if you are reading on a device that is connected to the Internet. Some Internet links may appear without an underline, but have telltale signs that it is an Internet link like .com at the end, or http:// in front of the link. Blue links without underlining in a Table of Contents are links to same-named locations in the book. Click one of these Table of Contents links to go directly to that named location within the book.

If you click an Internet link in this eBook on a reader, after going to that external page, look in the upper left corner for a message about getting back to this ebook. If you click an Internet link in this eBook while reading it on a laptop, the link will open in a separate window on your laptop's screen.

Enjoy and learn,
