Less Wrong sequences bundle (PDF)
The nice thing about these PDFs is that allow you to navigate Eliezer’s back- and forward-references to other articles in the sequences, or in other sequences. This is done in two ways:
the screen version of the PDF assumes you’re going to use a tablet or similar device to read it, and uses normal, blue links; external URLs are sign-posted appropriately.
the paper version of the PDF assumes you’re going to print it (!), and uses footnotes to show both external and internal links (for external links it shows the URL, for internal links it shows the page and title of the article).
The latest version of the sequences PDF was generated on 2013-04-28:
List of sequences
- Map and Territory
- Mysterious Answers to Mysterious Questions
- A Human’s Guide to Words
- How To Actually Change Your Mind
- The Metaethics Sequence
Also, an ePub or MOBI version of this bundle could be generated from the intermediate HTML output that the tool generates.
While ePub and MOBI have certain clear advantages over PDF (mainly, the ability to be read comfortably in devices of any size, e.g. mobile phones), they still lag behind in what respects to annotations.
For this reason (rich annotations), I very much prefer PDF for my non-fiction books.
Also, I wanted to see what Prince XML could and could not do.
