Hello,

many thanks!

BTW: I read your book. :)
It's quite good.

But I didn'tfoud the precision-stuff in it. Adding information about this topic in the next edition might be a good idea.

Nevertheless it explains crucial points very good, and from that starting point, it's easier to understand the manuals/help-pages.

Ciao,

   Oliver
