Book cover

First Page:

[This e text comes in two forms: Latin 1 and ASCII 7. Download the one that works best on your text reader.

In the Latin 1 version, names like "Aïdé" and words like "naïveté" have accents, and "æ" is a single letter. If any part of this paragraph displays as garbage, try changing your text reader's "character set" or "file encoding". If that doesn't work, proceed to:

The ASCII 7 or rock bottom version. All essential text will still be there; it just won't be as pretty.

Spacing of contractions such as I 've follows the original.]
