The books 1-6 are not the chronological ordering of the orginal books, how ever they are in correct order by publication date... but when you title a series, the jack ryan series books 1-6 it is naturally assumed by regular "joes" that it means in the chronological order. That was disappointment 1, disappointment 2 was that the books are often poorly transfer to kindle. I have the complete series in print, and they are getting rather worn from me reading all the way through the series then starting again...reading the books on kindle i figured would save wear... however i continually find myself getting the books out to read a certain section of text, because the kindle version is so garbled up that it can't be read. I would not waste the 45 dollars again on kindle book series, espeically if they are so poorly organised, edited, and falsely advertised. with amazon being such a stickler for rules and policies, you would think they would not "falsely advertise" something such as this.
