Many people prefer to flip through a book version of information that they find on the internet. I have spent many hours converting the most salient info from this website to fit a 8.5 x 11" sheet format.  Anyone who has tried to convert a website to a printable form realizes what a daunting undertaking this can be. The resulting document is 90 pages long. I am offering it in a color printable pdf format. The pdf file can be printed on any standard color laser printer, then bound in any way you please. For best results, use a two-sided print mode. Take a look below at some of the sample pages and at the Table of Contents (which parallels the pages of this website). Ordering information is provided at page bottom. 

Note: The sample images provided below are reductions of the 8.5 x 11" pages and have been converted to greyscale. They are provided to give you a feel for the appearence of printed page. The actual printed output is of course sharper than my scans of them, and include both color and B&W images!
