Part One – Practical User Guidelines

“If we had written this book a year ago, it would have ended up very different than it is >unfolding now – and so it would be a year from now, the next year, and so on. That is the nature of the subject. Even as we work on this text, we’re continually adding or changing things. These modifications could probably go on indefinitely, until we eventually print, what will ultimately be, the notes of an unfinished learning process.”
