Hi Keith,

first of all thanks for your work, this book is really amazing !

Just a note about the topic of flexbox. Since i have learned about it in chapter 5 I started to use flexbox layout extensively, everything worked well except for flex shrink. Several times i expected that a flex item started to shrink due to flex shrink, but it didn't.

After a few research on the internet i found out that the cause was something called "minimum sizing algorithm of flex items" thanks to the following stackoverflow post
https://stackoverflow.com/questions/36247140/why-doesnt-flex-item-shrink-past-content-size

Could please add something on this topic in chapter 5 ?

Many thanks !

Enrico

That’s a good point. I’ll see if I can work that into my explanation.
