It's so convenient now that we can buy books online from the comfort of our chairs and have them delivered straight to the door. This does, unfortunately, take away the ability to thumb through the pages to get an idea of the book's content, as we could if we had pulled a copy from the shelf of the local bookstore.
To help bridge this missing link there follows a list of the chapters with a brief synopsis of what each contains. There's also a sample page from each chapter in PDF format. These can be viewed in the browser or downloaded to your computer by right-clicking 'download linked file' (or equivalent for your browser).
