About the Book: Since this book was too large I've decided to remove background and to decompress it. Nothing important is lost and I've managed even with keeping colour pages to reduce it from 30.70MB to 10.50MB. I also made it searchable by creating Index so you can find everything you want going chapter by chapter.
