Thanks to Fortress Press for this copy. Can’t wait to dig into it. Here are some introductory pictures on my Mac and iPad:

On the iPad, the first thing you’ll notice is that you need download only the section of the book you’ll need. I suspect this is to save space given the large amount of data contained in the ebook.

The transition between sections of the book is seemless, btw. I’ve tried to capture one such transition. I’ll preview this book more later.

Right now, I’ve got to shovel a lot of snow.
