Book Preview is Up on Site!!!

Hey All,

Sorry I've been neglecting the site. The book is moving ahead apace. I've been told by P&R that it is scheduled for release at the end of April. But they've also let me give you guys a little taste of the book by giving me permission to post the cover and intro (and I don't think they'll be mad that I threw in the table of contents to boot).

A couple of things to keep in mind when looking at this material: 1. This is pre-edited, which means I haven't gone over the text yet with P&R. Expect it to read even better when the book is actually released. 2. I cannot figure out how to put in footnotes in this blog, so you're going to have to deal with just the text. The fascinating world of footnotes will just have to wait until you can actually hold the book in your own paws. 3. The table of contents pages will be completely different in the book. The page numbers here refer to my own double-spaced manuscript. I'm sure it will be quite different once it's in book form. But it will still give you a feel for the book's length (though that length may come down a bit during the editing process).

So enjoy! And leave comments if you like it (and even if you don't).
