Google books and sometime the poor quality of Scanning

Google book make a great job, but when you do something like that, you should try to have quality of image that is good.

In the books they offer, some words are cutted, missing pages, and sometime the pdf cannot even display 10, 20 or more pages ! (not the fault of google there, surely the Dl occured bad) how is it possible, I don't know, just ask the big google machine.

So, each time I Dl a book from google, I have to check if something is missing, if the book is important, I make screen prints in order to have the text.
