I just received my advance copy today. The book has more than 514 pages, plus a 48-page color insert. It’s printed on glossy stock. I was happy to see that the book offered no surprises after the first page-through. (Surprises always having negative connotations for an author!) My contact at Stackpole says the book is being printed this week and will definitely be in the stores in January.
Many thanks to all those who helped on this project!
