Prior to the release of the Kindle a number of books were released that were essentially collections of Wikipedia entries.  These included such titles as The Mysterious Jack the Ripper and Profiling History’s Most Notorious Serial Killers: Jack the Ripper.  Now the digital age is upon us similar titles are making their way onto the Kindle and this is the latest.  Released in January 2012 it features entries on the following topics,

• Jack the Ripper
• The Whitechapel Murders
• Mary Ann “Polly” Nichols (murder victim of Jack the Ripper)
• Annie Chapman (murder victim of Jack the Ripper)
• Elizabeth Stride (murder victim of Jack the Ripper)
• Catherine Eddowes (murder victim of Jack the Ripper)
• Mary Jane Kelley (murder victim of Jack the Ripper)
• The Whitehall Mystery (an unsolved murder, assumed to have been
committed after Jack the Ripper stopped his killing spree)
• Jack the Ripper Suspects (including some unlikely ones, such as Lewis Carroll, the author of Alice in Wonderland; and the Duke of Clarence (a grandson of Queen Victoria)
• Jack the Ripper in Fiction
• The “From Hell” Letter, widely regarded as from Jack the Ripper. It was delivered with a human kidney.
• The “Saucy Jacky” postcard
• The “Dear Boss” Letter
• The Openshaw Letter / Biography of Dr. Thomas Openshaw
• The Goulston Street Graffito
• Police Commissioner Thomas Arnold
• Detective Chief Inspector Walter Dew
• Frederick George Abberline
• Sir Robert Anderson, KCB
• General Sir Charles Warren, Commissioner of Police
• Donald Swanson, Chief Inspector
• George Godley
• Whitechapel, Then and Now
• Jack the Ripper, The Final Solution, by Stephen Knight (1976 book)

It is useful if one doesn’t have access to Wikipedia, but I prefer the Casebook Wiki pages over the Wikipedia entries which are only as true as the people that contribute. 

On the plus side, the download is free!
