The following discussion occurred last September.  Is there any kind of 
update on any version of this book?

My wife (mainly) and I, with Simon's permission, have been working on
getting a web-enabled version of this available for quite some time.  It
hovers on the brink of completion, and should be there Real Soon Now as
well.  This will include a web enabled table of contents and next and back

If I'd known how much time she would put in, I'd have never asked her for "a
small favor".......
