Just reading the table of contents for this book I found myself learning and excited to learn more!
In fact, there are so many pages in the Table of contents, that I accidentally missed a page when I originally took pictures of it. (Here’s the missing page I just now took, sorry for the poor lighting, but it can’t be missed!)
