Congrats on releasing your second book!
Sadly it's a bit rushed release from typesetting PoV. To others: Peteris didn't show to me any WIP version before releasing it (just to make it clear, because by reading credits some of you could think the opposite), so I couldn't comment it earlier. But it is still better than previous one (that much I can say from comparing both samples, haven't seen full books) and hopefully the following ones will be even better rounded.
Keep the good work!
Thanks Przemysław! This book is definitely much better typeset than the previous one. I agree that there are some typesetting issues but those are minor ones, like the titles for table of contents are pretty long. Otherwise the book itself looks great (see the book preview).
Just to let others know - Przemysław helped me to learn LaTeX and he has been giving a lot of tips on how to improve typesetting, and it's not the easiest thing to get right. Also taste for typesetting depends on the person, so what looks great to one, doesn't look that great to someone else.
He gave me a lot of tips on how to improve typesetting in this book (based on the preview) - smaller font and better spacing for the table of contents, better color for hyperlinks, better spacing for bullet points and other small improvements.
I just bought a copy and the typography in this book is really nice. Great work Peteris.
