things will change!
Book Draft 2 (PDF, 66MB). 1
This book is most certainly far from finished, feedback at many
different levels is useful:
- I'm very interested in issues
of structure and exposition at large and medium scales: the ordering
of chapters themselves, of sections within chapters, and even of
paragraph-level explanations within sections.
- I'm very interested in omissions - if you think important
material is missing.
- I'm very interested in any question of fact - if you think anything
I've written is just plain wrong, please do let me know.
- I'm also interested
in issues of interpretation, especially on the frameworks for
Principles and Methods that I'm proposing here.
- I'm not so interested in English bugs at the level of grammar/typos -
fine to send them along if you notice any, but careful copyediting
will take place at a later phase after the content is more stable.
- I'm not interested in feedback about layout or figure locations, that
will be completely redone at a later stage of book production. Also,
the "vocab notes" currently formatted as footnotes
will be something like callout boxes in margin. All hand-drawn
diagrams will of course become something more polished, after the
content is more nailed down.
