I've decided to write a short blog-type post every week here on this forum. These posts are exclusive to this forum, and they will primarily be about the writing of the book.

The book has returned from the layout process, and it looks really good! Check out some the pictures below (from Chapters 1 and 2).

The output from the layout process was PDF files, and I used a the venerable PDFtk program to count all the pages as a first pass. There are 379 pages, including 15 pages for the index.

I am sure the next task will be for me to review all of these. I'm up for it. It means the project is getting closer to the end.

Thanks everyone for reading!
