Proofs of the book
It’s my last look at the book before it hits the shelves (except the index). They’ve sent me proofs of the whole thing, all at once.
Some of the introductory stuff has moved (as agreed) from chapter 1 to a preface; other than that it looks pretty much as expected. Well, as far as I’ve looked, which isn’t much yet, as I’ve only just downloaded it.
Looks like their 560 pages estimate was not far off: it’s 30 pages of front matter, 530 pages of body, plus Index TBD. 350 pages are my work; 188 are appendixes (mostly the HTTP spec), and the remainder are the Table of Contents, publisher’s boilerplate, DrBacchus’s foreword, etc.
Looking forward to seeing it in print:-)
