Second edition now published

I’m pleased to announce that the second edition of my book has just been published. Why a new edition? Simply because, despite the most careful preparation, it was inevitable that a work of this scope and complexity would contain at least some errors, ambiguities and typos. Since the book was first published two years ago, these have been slowly accumulating in the online errata sheet. This second edition consists of the original first edition text plus all those corrections and clarifications. It’s globally available as a paperback (ISBN 9780957389458) from Amazon and other retailers, as well as in Kindle and ePub format. Thanks to all those readers who took the trouble to notify me of errors in the text.
