Michael-

Could you post a table of contents for the book to the forum? I looked for one on the book's web site, but couldn't find one. Having a table of contents would make it easier to gauge what your book covers.

Thanks,
Josh

Josh,

The TOC is generated automatically by the build system, so it's pretty awkward to post here. I'll lay out the sections of the book. That shows the top-level structure without the chapter- and section-level TOC.

Part I - Stability
Part II - Capacity
Part III - General Design Issues
Part IV - Operations

Each section starts with a case study---a personal experience of mine that sets the stage for the following discussion. For example, Stability begins with "The Exception That Grounded an Airline," a whodunnit story about an event that left thousands of travelers stranded due to a one-line bug.

Cheers,
-Mike

Thank you for posting that.

It's just hard to tell from those broad headings what is really covered within each part. Will a detailed table of contents be available on the book's web site any time soon?

Thanks,
Josh

I suspect the answer is "yes", but I'll find out. I know that Pragmatic Programmers usually posts the TOC, so I do see why this book would be different.

I do have to confess that we're in the final stages of production: indexing, copy-editing, and layout. So, it may just be that the TOC isn't there because the book hasn't hit the shelves yet!

I'll find out and post a reply.

Cheers,
-Mike

The Table of Contents is online now.

It's a little rough. My editor put up an early extract that hasn't been through typesetting yet, but we're being flexible.

Cheers,
