In response to "are [you] on track to meeting your goal of submitting the remaining "x" chapters this summer?"
"We're a bit behind schedule, but I think this means we'll shorten some of the x chapters a bit - just a bit mind you. There's too much good stuff already finished that we can't continue to hold back.
"We're getting closer. For example, we broke the old 80-page precision and low-noise Chapter 7 into two, both greatly-expanded with massive cool stuff. We submitted Chapter 5, Precision Circuits, last summer, and it was 135 pages long. This week we're finishing Chapter 8, Low-Noise Techniques, and we expect it to be about 130 pages. So that's about 3x more great material, on just those two topics! We expect y'all will love it."
Hah, Chapter 8 ended up 166 pages long. Whew!
"In January we'll submit chapter 9, Power Design - it's almost done now, and then we'll have submitted 15 chapters, leaving five more "x" chapters to go.
I think I mentioned the x chapters, with their extra, more-advanced material, so we certainly don't want to short-change them! Anyway, three of those are more than half done, and we hope to have submitted everything by next summer.
That means the book should be out by late 2012 or early 2013."
