    I downloaded the book and am looking forward to reading it but why are a lot of diagrams cut in half? Also it is regrettable that the convention of White always at the bottom of the board has not been followed.

    I've always thought that 'convention' was annoying - especially for Black-based opening books - Adorjan apparently agrees with the 'Black is OK' series.
    I also own various puzzle books with 'Black to Play and Win' where we see things from the winner's point of view.

    This is what a typical diagram looks like on my Kindle for PC, with the page width reduced from the default.
    If the width is reduced any further the diagram will be split.

    Its possible that split diagrams might be resolved by altering settings.

    I don't get any split diagrams on my Kindle PC or the Amazon phone, iphone or kindle previews. Which OS are you using and what EBook reading software are you using?

    Are you able to attach a screenshot of a split diagram?

    I preferred the old Descriptive Notation for studying Black's games as it more accurately described the position of going forward and attack and was the described in the same format as white. The seventh-described rank becomes vital for the same reasons, i.e., attack.
