I've ordered the book for work but we haven't received it yet.

I read the sample chapter and it's brilliant: really clear,
easy to follow, and seemed 100% error-free (a rarity).

Oh, and I love the "formula" way each section is laid out:

* Section Intro
* How do I do that?
* What just happened?
* What about... (Q&A)

with annotations down the right hand side. This layout is so
effective I'm surprised it hasn't been done before -- ok, so
probably it has, it's just that I haven't seen it before. :-)
Anyone know who invented this layout style? I've already
started using it for work documentation.
