And reviewers are coming in hot.​

“Great book, probably saved me $500 in printer ink!” noted a five-star reviewer who answers the question of paperback versus PDF. “It’s got a great introduction narrative and I love how it included the various indictments, Barr’s letter, and other filings. The legal term glossary, and list of individuals referenced in the report, are very helpful.”

“Well formatted Kindle edition, with extras that enhance understanding of this historic document,” said another about the Kindle edition. “The entire ebook is searchable, which I find enormously helpful. The footnote links toggle correctly, and the redacted highlights are distinctive and easily differentiated from my own highlights. For me, the convenience of the Kindle features plus the extra articles and references, make this Mueller Report by the Washington Post staff well worth the cost.

“Both volumes are included in this book, and there is an excellent introduction by staff people from the Washington Post,” wrote another. “I really appreciate that the Washington Post produced such a comprehensive and useful version of this report. Even in its redacted form, it is a key historical document that addresses the important question of foreign interference in a US election.”

An Amazon Top 10 reviewer added, “This is a rather dry read, but it is a must-read book of historical value. Five stars out of five.”
