The book's not even making it past the very first page without having two errors does not bode well for the rest of it. In fact, the book couldn't even make it out of the first paragraph of the second page without a blunder.

The second paragraph on page 2 of the introduction has YET ANOTHER ERROR! "But when your [sic] prepare a document to be printed ..." I may entertain the author for a few more pages if I have time to waste, but that's about it.
