Latest version of my iami1 wordpress blogbook available for free download and reuse (of my content); Next step is 'laser printer' printed & bound A5 size book

Last updated on 27th June 2018

Given below are the relevant contents of the updated iami1 wordpress blog page: Free Blogbook Download; Free Reuse of Author’s Content, https://iami1.wordpress.com/consolidated-blog-content-document/.

Users/visitors/readers (referred to from now on as simply users) are welcome to do ***free*** download of NOT-FOR-PROFIT-for-author Blogbook documents linked below having most of the content of this iami1.wordpress.com blog. Users can print and even sell the printed book/document if they want – details of that permission are given in the initial part of the document. All of this author’s, Ravi S. Iyer’s, content in the blogbook documents below can be ***freely reused*** with details of the free reuse permission/license being specified in the initial part of the document.

Note that while I have done some level of checking for errors, I have not spent and don’t want to spend too much time on it. I expect readers to be indulgent with my errors, perhaps take the pains to inform me about it so that I can fix the errors in the blog and/or in future versions of the blogbook. This is the do and release quickly and don’t mind some errors kind of approach of software development, where errors are reported by users which then leads to fixes in the software. I have applied this approach of software development to preparing this document/blogbook.

Document/Book links given below are of version/date 12th April 2018

Next step is to print the A5 Word document using a printer who can also provide or arrange for decent binding facility so that I get 1 copy of 'laser printer' book version. It seems I may be able to get this done locally in Puttaparthi. But I wonder how the binding will be.

Offset printing is used, I believe, to print well bound books (like the paperback books we buy from shops and book selling websites). But the number of copies printed in one run are typically high (for resonable price per book copy). So I am NOT in that space as of now.
