OK - I got roped into doing this recently for fun, and it turned out funnier than I expected.

Downloaded. Looks like a fun read! Will probably share it with my Dad as well. How long did it take you to pen this?

It took me 2 days (basically the weekend).
However, writing is easy for me (I've written 24 published academic textbooks that are used in colleges and universities worldwide).

How many of those textbooks are about optimizing 68k assembly for Capcom?

Sadly.....NONE!
They're mostly on Linux, UNIX, Windows Server, Scripting, Exchange Server and an ancient technology called BlackBerry Enterprise Server.
Oh, and one book on Windows Vista (don't judge me - I was young and needed the money).
