You may find it useful to read this book from cover to cover, as the hacks do build on each other a bit from beginning to end. However, each hack is designed to stand on its own as a particular example of one way to accomplish a particular task. To that end, I have grouped together hacks that fit a particular theme into sections, but I do cross-reference quite a bit between hacks from different sections (and also to more definitive resources on the subject). Don't consider a given section as a cut-and-dried chapter with rigidly defined subject boundaries but more as a convenient way of collecting similar (and yet independent) hacks. You may want to read this book much like the way most people browse web pages online: follow whatever interests you, and if you get lost, follow the links within the piece to find more information.
