Getting a Bit Pungent in Here

First new book of the new year. I'm 28 pages into it (arabic numerals), and the author is still telling me what the book is going to be about. Given that the Methodological Notes begin on 211, I'm in for an epic round of wheel-spinning over the next 180 or so pages, stuck in horseshit. And why do I get these books for indexing? If I was proofreading it, I really couldn't care.

Happy new year.
