The Geek Atlas - wrong link titles in mobi format

Hello, I bought this interesting book and as I'm reading, I already found some links with bad titles - they should be links to some other chapters, but their title is just "Practical information". It makes no sense. Links is going to the right place, but it's name should be maybe the main heading of the chapter, not "Practical information", because there is something different. To make it clear, here is a screenshot from my Kindle:

The link is underlined. In a PDF version, there is just a text "... (for more on ideal gases, see page 211)."

  • Hello Marek,

    Sorry for my delay in getting back to you. I have touched base with one of the editors concerning the titles of the links in the mobi version. Once I have more information I will be in touch. Hope you're enjoying the Geek Atlas otherwise, and have a great day!

  • Hello Marek,

    Thanks for your patience and I have some information to share concerning this. Since there aren't page numbers in the mobi (which are included in the PDF) then the closest section heading to the location being linked to is inserted. This book includes many sections named "Practical Information," which is why you are seeing this.

    Kind regards,

  • Hello Paul,

    thanks for your answer. I thought that this could be the reason - that it just take the closest heading. But I think that it should be possible to use the heading which is one level higher in the outline - that would work much better... Using a title, which is present in the book so many times doesn't make sense for me - because the reference/link description should be unique. If it says just "Practical information", I would expect that it is a link to "Practical information" (subchapter/subsection) in a current chapter...

    Best regards

    Marek
