I often say that the adjustable gastric band requires a lot of fine-tuning in order to work optimally. So, it turns out, does my band book.
Two days ago I received proofs of the cover and text from the printer. I'm about halfway through proof-reading the text. I proof-read it very carefully before I sent the file to the printer, but now I can see dozens of things in it that I could have done better. Occasionally I'll read a few paragraphs and think, "Did I write that? That's brilliant!" but mostly it's, "Ugh."
But I cannot spend the rest of my life perfecting this book. If I did that, the AGB will be an antique oddity by the time I finally publish the book.
