Sidebars contain special tips, warnings, and extra facts that are related to the text where they are found. They provide a way for the author to communicate with you while preserving the natural flow of information for the concepts you are learning in the normal text. They often emphasize important topics, so you might find them very helpful.


In most of the chapters, the author uses Shop Talks to share her personal experiences as they relate to the chapter. These elements often contain opinions or preferences; the rest of the book is confined strictly to the facts. The author's opinions or preferences might not always apply to your situation, so keep that in mind when you read a Shop Talk.
