3D Thinking – Last stages of editorial

The deadline for the final edit is August 15th – this includes the math edit which is almost complete. The last remaining task is to complete the Index. I had no idea that the editorial phase would take up so much time. We were a little held up last year due to an earthquake in central Italy where one of the editors lives – Kirsty, a great editor by the way! Even so time passes – but now the end is in site and the book is now ship-shape, so to speak.
