Surprised!, Don't be, what we have attempted is to duplicate a server-side redirect here. The idea is, supposingly you are viewing this book online from a website, this will give enough time to think about leaving this environement which is what would have happened if you had clicked on any link, or save this page and go back to the page you were browsing. this will leave with the option of checking out the later at your convenience. To us when and if, a misnomer the link needs to be updated or changed or edited etc. we have to tinker with this page rather than hunt and peck at the links by searching them from different pages

I have strived hard to make it as easy as possible for all to traverse here for finding the links . As a thumb rule all the links have as title the name of the chapter you clicked on the link.
