How many pages are related to focusing and especially AF.C?

I'm curious how much of the book is related to how to actually set up the many options - and how they interplay - to accomplish various objectives. I'm less interested in a sequential rehash of what each item and sub-item and Yes/No function turns on/off.

I did find an article on the web informative - it gives some scenarios - albeit for Nikon and Canon autofocus - that I could relate to K-3 autofocus
I posted it on the forum

I wish he had printed versions of his books. I hate PDF reading on the computer.

A professional printer could print a relatively small booklet. I can't do this on my printer. Obviously, I could go to Staples and pay $40 (plus the $15 for the e-book), but he could do this much cheaper because he has the volume ( a local printer here would print 250 copies for $8 each for example).

This is meant to be constructive feedback. I know a lot of people who prefer printed over PDF so he may be able to make more money with a printed option.

Downloaded the book. Also wish I could a printed copy. I'm trying to get a copy on my Nook, but not having much luck yet. Reading the e-book on my computer while trying the camera is not very convenient. I may end up printing the over 300 pages. Glanced through the pages and this is the manual that Pentax (Oops, I mean Ricoh) should have included. Looks very comprehensive.

Looks excellent on an iPad! Taking on vacation with me- better than a book!

Got it on my Nook, just needed to reload Adobe Reader. Much more convenient than reading off my computer. Still wish I could get a printed version, without printing the ~300 pages myself.
