The following is the htmlised version of a book I attempted to write many years ago.  Here is the table of contents for the final (still incomplete) draft.

The process of converting a print-specific document to web page involves a transformation of ideas as well as of media.  So what had previously been a self-contained book now includes links to other pages on my site, giving it a broader emphasis than was originally projected.  This however is not necessarily a bad thing.

I have also added a few contributions by my friend, Arvan Harvat
