    Hi, Filip,

    I am looking forward to reading the book! In the meantime, the instructions for getting the electronic version of the book are really confusing. It took me quite some time to figure it out, and I can see I am not alone. Would you please consider editing the blog posts (announcing the book) with this in mind?

    Thank you!
