Default How to read ASM without the annoying Content Raven?

First timer using ASM with Content Raven, and I've found it to be a huge pain to deal with.

It lags like crazy every time you scroll down the page, it takes almost a minute for their "find" function to locate any word in the pdf and it somehow managed to lose all of my notes/annotations when I logged in today. That being said, ASM is an amazing manual and it would be perfect if it were just a little easier to access and read through.

I think a normal pdf viewer (Adobe Reader or OSX Preview) would be so much easier to use than CR, has anyone found a way to use that instead?

You can try printing it out. It'll only set you back around 10-20.

or see if you can save it broken up into chapters so that the file size doesn't cause so much lag.
