From the Author:

This book represents the combined knowledge that came from writing two previous versions of this book along with the strong guiding hand of Joseph Sack as technical editor. The information you see here has been completely rebuilt from scratch from previous versions of the book. The chapters have been renamed, broken up, and rearranged as well as additional material being added. It's not just the same book with a few extra pages. It's a whole new work. Check it out. I don't think you'll be disappointed.
