Thank you for the review. I would like you to know that we did consider switching chapters 17 and 18 in this edition, however Joel wanted to keep it this way because there is information in the deployment chapter that you need to know for chapter 18. Also, chapter 18 is one of the most complicated in the book, so he thought that by putting it last, colleges might not need to cover it all (if they didn't want to).
