Last summer, Ben and I went through the manuscript for my new book: Please eat... with a tooth comb. However I've changed and expanded it quite a bit since then. So now he's decided to go through it all again, so I ordered 2 final printed proofs which arrived the other day: one for me and one for him.
I've already been through mine. He's still on chapter 4 of his (only another 28 to go... 255+ pages in all...). Not because he's finding problems with it (although there is the odd minor tweak I need to do), but because, I suspect, it doesn't make easy reading for him.
But he's adamant that he wants to read it again. So I will need to wait until he has finished before I can go ahead and publish.
And I may decide to order another "final" printed proof before I do.
Just to make sure it's perfect!
