Very nice, much needed, much appreciated.

PS: Why no html (yet) ? HTML chapters make it easy to show people where to look.

It is great thanks!
As a side note, I always order the paper version to support the effort,
but I found the printed books quality to not resist to intensive use,
the pages tend to fall apart. Any alternative for more solid printed
book? From previous experience, I found printing to local printer to
produce more durable material (spiral ones).

For now no.
You cannot imagine the effort to produce a decent cover.
I will check if there is a spiral version on lulu.
The problem is that sometimes (I learned it the hard way), changing the  
color of the paper
changes the format :(

I have two other books on the back burner and I would like to push them  
out of the door.
But pillar is also in need for love because I want to use ecstatic
and I should work on the module system for pharo plus all the rest ;)

I like your suggestion and I checked on lulu
The current size is
        format royal 15.6 * 23.39 (and I think that we should not get smaller)

Now on spiral I got
        black and white: Letter US 21.6 * 27.94
        A5 but this is smaller 14.81 * 20.99

        cream: 15.24 * 22.86 (I think that it will be too small)

So I will give a try to produce a spiral in Letter US and let you know.
If you are interested I could give you access to a print version as soon  
as I get
the cover.

The CI link provided also has HTML artifacts for each chapter

BUT

you do not need to use html version

if you want to give an online direct link to a specific page of the pdf you can have a link like this one

https://ci.inria.fr/pharo-contribution/view/Books/job/UpdatedPharoByExample/lastSuccessfulBuild/artifact/book-result/UpdatedPharoByExample.pdf#page=13&zoom=auto,-101,177

you can create such link using the bookmark tool
