Hi Anthony.

The detail in your first edition was great. What new additional areas will you be covering in the second edition ?

One thing that has always been a major detraction for Manning books is that the sans-serif style of typography used is very very hard on the eye.

I realise it's the in-house style, but is there any prospect that you could get the final version of the book published in Times Roman ?

This makes for a far better reading experience.

The new edition covers the new facilities from C++14, C++17 and the Concurrency TS.

I'll pass on your feedback about the typeface.

I agree that Times Roman would be _much_ better for actually reading something. That is what Latex uses as default and they are smart people, using the classic fonts developed over generations.
