using the EPUB on my Android tablet

- most reader apps don't allow the font to be resized when using the book's CSS

- some also have problems displaying the chapter/section titles and the paragraph breaks correctly

The issue seems to be related to the concrete 'pt' font sizes specified in the stylesheet.css where other (Manning) books use relative 'em' values:

/* Java Persistence with Hibernate */
.Body1 {
color: black;
display: block;
font-family: "Verdana", "sans-serif";
font-size: 8pt;
line-height: 12.5pt;
text-align: center;
margin: 0 0 0.0001pt

/* Java 8 in Action */
.calibre {
display: block;
font-size: 1em;
margin-bottom: 0;
margin-left: 5pt;
margin-right: 5pt;
margin-top: 0;
padding-left: 0;
padding-right: 0

Apps I tried: Cool Reader, Aldiko, FBReader, Moon+, ebooks.de, Universal Book Reader
