Last sentence, second last paragraph

Sentence: "In order to know if things are working, you have to start at the top instead, which I covered xref." "xref" should be instead be a reference to the previous place this top down was discussed. My guess is on page 24. Looks like this might be because you use LaTeX and \xref{reference} is the way you tell LaTeX that you want to make a reference. Thanks for an interesting book on an important topic! Thomas Hansen

Note from the Author or Editor:
Original line ending was "... which I covered earlier in the book." and was changed to "... which I covered xref." during post-production (seemingly accidental). Needs to be reverted for future releases.
