Hi Robert/Patricia,

This guide seems to have a lot of content for 224 pages.

What size font can I expect? I have seen some 'pocket' guides send people cross eyed.

thanks,
Daniel

Thank you for the question, and for a quick response...

Eyeballing the general text in the book, it looks around 9 or 9.5.

Generally, going under 9 isn't a good idea for readability.

Hi Robert,
9, 9.5 should be fine, I remember a little pocket Thesaurus I once had, now that was eye gouging.
Thanks for responding, it's a big plus being able to talk to the authors!
cheers,
Daniel
