I received my copy of the 2015-04-24 release from Amazon on 2016-08-01. Pages 219 - 222, inclusive, are missing. In their place are 30 blank sheets.

Note 18 bottom of page

Note 18 says "Melt a small amount of paraffin in a small beaker in a microwave". This won't work. Microwave energy needs polar molecules (the molecules have distinct areas of positive and negative charges) such as water, to be able to 'grab' onto them and cause them to vibrate. Paraffin is non-polar. I have tried this myself. After several minutes of power, the glass jar I used got quite hot, but the paraffin wasn't even softened. I think if you placed the paraffin beaker in another dish full of water you probably could melt the wax, but I haven't tried.
