No photos in eBook
Buyers of the eBook beware: every image has been removed, replaced with the note "copyrighted image removed by publisher". Explain to me how an elevation profile is subject to a
copyright from a third party? I'm willing to forgive cover art a bit, since the legal landscape there gets complicated, but the elevation profiles were CREATED FOR YOUR BOOK. To me, it looks like removing the images is just severe laziness on the part of the publisher.
