One of the reasons why the response to the blook was so positive was, I think, because people still find it more convenient to flick through a book on the train than to read on-screen. And the nature of the blook — which after all has no narrative structure — that its convenient to be able to dip into a particular theme, flick through it and then put the blook away again. It’s also easier to mark it up with pencil or stickies and show it to people to illustrate a point.
Thanks to everyone who provided feedback and reviews. Jane and I did receive some useful and constructive criticism of the first blook and we’ve used to make this one even better. We’ve made it bigger (192 pages vs. 120 last time), added a glossary, made the index better and made the themes stronger so it should be easier to browse. We hope you like it.
