All of this wouldn’t be taking so long if I weren’t the world’s worst proofreader. Well, I guess that’s a bit of an exaggeration, but it never ceases to amaze me how many times I can read through a document and STILL find mistakes. Anyway, all this will come to an end at some point, and the book will be published. If you find any mistakes in it, please forgive me!
