About the Book
DO NOT BUY THIS VERSION OF THE BOOK. IT HAS BEEN SUPERSEDED by its FINAL REWRITE of January 18, 2016. Please access the January 18, 2016 version, which should appear as topmost on the screen where all my books are listed. The reason why I have to keep this early version of the book in this spot is because the various search engines (Google and such) list it. They may not list the rewrite at all. I am not sure.
