An Accompanying PDF Lol

Am I missing something?

Can Audible (or anyone) explain why the paper back version has 224 pages while the accompanying PDF has 44 pages?

Thank you in anticipation 👍

Please view the accompanying PDF...

This is a very good introduction to some of the terminology of stargazing and suggestions of how and what to look for when observing. The author is very clear in his tone and keeps a consistently high quality in speaking. The recording is of high quality and easy to listen to. That said, the repeated reminders to look at the PDF are very distracting from the narration. This is only a 3.5 hour audiobook, I'm unlikely to forget there is a PDF after the first 2-3 mentions.
