Failed: Convert book 1 of 1

Hello! I am new to the forum - but delighted to be here. I am having issues converting a book I purchased - have tried to convert it into many formats (PDF, Mobi, AZW3, etc.) but always get an error. The log is as follows:
Spoiler:

Any help you could provide in letting me know what is happening, and if it's possible to circumvent the error, would be most appreciated! Thank you - and thank you Kovid, in particular, for this amazing program!

Thank you!

I'm going to see if I can re-download it and get a better file. Thanks very much!

That file should have thrown an error in its native format using the native viewer.
If you used some other tools on the file go there for help as we can't continue that discussion.
