Without Spritz, I can scan a page and be drawn to things like headers, paragraphs, formulae, etc etc. Which to me is really impt with CFA textbooks. With Spritz all that formatting disappears. I can see it working with text-only reads like novels, biographies etc, but CFA would be a hard sell to me.
