Cool The Last Boy: Mickey Mantle and the End of America's Childhood

The Last Boy: Mickey Mantle and the End of America's Childhood (Kindle Edition with Audio/Video)

...er...well....it's free

what a space wasting piece of junk, it is over 7 megs (i assume because of the so-called audio/video) and the included audio/video doesn't work.

sigh

well i went back and carefully re-examined the page where i ordered this book and found this (as a popup bubble) 'Kindle Edition with Audio/Video - Audio/Video content only available for iPads, iPhones, and iPod Touch' devices. while looking for the page where i ordered it from (cost=$0) i also found this page (cost=$12.99). i find this whole situation hard to believe. maybe the video should also work on k4pc?

also, there seems to be little interest (none) for this thread.

oh well!

ok....this will be my last post in this really [un]popular thread.

i sent the file to alf who sent me back a txt file in which i edited out all content except the actual text, then made an epub out of that (with a toc) and finally made the epub into a mobi. final results, azw=7,332 kb, mobi=762 kb.
