How to read the magazine

Of course you can read the book carefully in order, but we recommend you open it to wherever you feel like and read the parts that interest you.

Even if it’s just one paragraph, we’ve tried to structure the book in a way that you’ll be able to find something new or reconfirm something. Please feel free to open the book and read only the parts that interest you.
