Unfortunately Mark's draft pages are completely 404 now but you can
read them here:

I personally like to browse a book before I purchase it and having the
ability to appreciate Mark's book online greatly influences my
decision to purchase (in the positive in this case).

I also think I will likely get a copy of Stephen's book, since Apress
has at least some sample chapters to read.

I am currently working on a curriculum set for homeschooled and
classically educated children grades 3-12.  (as well as science and
technology curriculum in general for this age range).
