This is moving in the wrong direction

It looks like my books are getting shorter and shorter…

Functional Programming in R was about 31,000 words.

Object-oriented Programming in R about 24,000 words.

Right now, it looks like Meta-programming in R will end up around 20,000 words.

I should probably think up a chapter or two more for Meta-programming in R so it doesn’t end up being too short. 25,000-30,000 words is okay for these books; they are supposed to be short, but they weren’t supposed to get shorter and shorter for each new book…
