    The book downloaded fine... you just can't read it at all... Anyone else having this problem?

    Steve would not be pleased!

    Why do I have a feeling the answer to this will also be the answer to the original question?

    I think he was implying that you got it illegally... not sure why people jump to conclusions. Anyhow, I haven't heard of anyone else having this issue, though I haven't bought it yet so I don't know. Maybe try to delete and re-download. Also, try to relaunch iBooks.

    I have deleted it and tried again... re-launched ibooks seems one other person is having this problem too. I'm sure i'm not alone here. :p

    Ok sorry.

    Hmm. Kill the iBooks app and try again? Reboot?

    Worse comes to worst, you could try to convert it to a PDF in Calibre.

    Regarding your first sentence, he already did that above - hence, read up.
    Regarding your second sentence, he purchased it from the iBook Store. How in the world can he go and convert it to a PDF?

    Looking good here on the 4S. I downloaded from iTunes on the Mac and synced to the phone, however. (Call me old-fashioned!)

    I think you downloaded the Greek addition and that is why you can't read it.

    I had to double click the home button and completely close iBooks, but it now works.

    I've heard of others with the same problem. Haven't heard of a fix yet. :confused:

    Sample vs Full Book? Could it be that iPhone does not have enough RAM? It's unlikely for the book should not take up that much RAM.

    I had the same issue. What fixed it for me was to delete it from my iPad, downloading it again on iTunes on the Mac and syncing it over.

    Yeah, I very nearly pre-ordered the Greek edition! :eek: Maybe that's the problem? The English version comes out fine on my devices.

    I had the exact same problem.
    double-tapping the home button, closing iBooks and opening it again, fixed it.

    I awoke this morning to find the SJ book (pre-ordered iBookstore) had downloaded automatically to my iPhone while I slept.

    Views completely fine.
