These For Dummies books are organized in a way that you don’t have to read the whole thing. You can get in and get out and not have to wade through a bunch of information that you may not need. Actually, I’d love for you to read every word of this book, but if you don’t, I’ve organized the text so you’re able to find information easily and easily understand what you find.
I want to believe that you’ll find every word fascinating, but I’m willing to cut you some slack if you’re inclined to skip around. If you’re going to jump around, keep in mind that although interesting, the sidebars sprinkled throughout the text aren’t essential to your understanding of the material. Sidebars are contained within shaded boxes, and they often contain personal stories and other observations.
