[Editorial note: The original December update was 16 Dec 2015, but I found a couple of places where some formatting adjustments were needed, so the wonders of eBook publishing makes everything good again.]

    Tony, Amazon link is still saying September 2015?
    I also presume that 16th December 2016 above is a typo. 🙂

    • The edition is from September 2015, but we have updated it (yesterday), so the date on the book is 16 December 2015. If you scroll down through the Amazon description, it says “This version is accurate as of 16 December 2015.” Perhaps I should move this text higher up.

      And yes, there was a typo… now fixed. I shouldn’t try and do 42 different things at one time. Note to self for 2016…
