You will not be able to read this book with you nook.that was my answer after 1/2 hour of been transfered from one operator to another to digital support. They say they will return my money back. They were all were very nice, but the first 2 employes had no idea eTexbook will not work with Nook. to bad this is a clinical book most nurses need it handy on the floor!

This is a brand new book, but there is no CD-ROM, which is supposed come with it. Read from the front to the back, all instructions repeat over and over how important that CD-ROM is; anyway, you can't find, and can't get it from the website either.
