CIA World Factbook

Has anyone brought or tried this ebook?

http://www.mobipocket.com...

It does look very interesting and seems to have a lot of information.

It looks like the wrong format for Kindle to me. Mobipocket is not the same as .mobi. Also if it is DRMed which I suspect it is, it is not easy to convert. However it can be bought from Amazon CIA World Factbook 2010 in the right format.
That is a good book which is opened with expectation and closed with profit.

If you have a 3G Kindle, or are always near wifi, then just use the CIA World Fact Book website - it contains all the information and will always be more up to date than the last version of the book
