Great, I liked the book, but I had to return the book every two month
to my university library. No more neccessary as I can read it online,
hooray!

Thanks a lot!

regards,
Marek

That's great, but any chance the book could be made available all in one
big PDF? Otherwise someone would need to stitch them together ...

I agree. I am very happy that this work is now online, since I had
been hoping to compare it to other titles one day, and having it all
in one integrated PDF file would be much more convenient.

FYI, there are some tools that can do the job; e.g., pdf2ps, psmerge,
and ps2pdf.
