New: Table of Contents for the new book

Well, as of tonight, the text is basically done. The last holes have been filled in, everything seems consistent, at least from what I can tell, so it seems all that needs to be done now is write a quickie introduction, and then give it a once over for consistency, then get ready to send out prospectus to some publishers. Woohoo! Still, that’ll prob take me a little while to do, especially as grading is gonna get pretty crazy pretty soon. Anyway, the table of contents is listed below, to give folks an idea of what’s in the pipe. Looking forward to getting this out there!
