To those of you who purchased an e-version of our book Making It and had trouble reading it, I just received a note from our publisher Rodale:
The “disappearing words” are actually words that appear in a faint gray color that was hard or impossible to see over light background color settings on some devices, especially the Kindle from Amazon.
We have corrected the e-book files and re-released them to all retailers. The corrected versions should be live and for sale within the next two weeks.
In most cases customers will receive automatic notification that a (free) update is available. That notification should come by way of an email from the retailer where the book was purchased. If notification is not received by the end of August, we suggest they contact the retailer directly to request the update.
Sorry about this!
