When will the book be finished?

That's a good question. The short answer is most likely in the second quarter of 2019.

Right now, we're closing in on 10 chapters written (in various states of review/editing), aiming for 11 chapters in parts 1+2, and 2 or 3 more for part 3. Now that chapter 6 is out, the pace for MEAP chapters will probably pick up as we catch up to where I am in part 2.

I personally am aiming to have finished all the writing by the end of January, 2019, with final edits and diagrams probably coming after that. It sounds like once authors are completely done, Manning takes over, with layout, typesetting, and printing all taking a couple more months.

Hopefully that helps give a sense of where we're at.
