    1. Roy, you can convert this to a PDF format. You will find instructions on this site for several ways to view .epub files. If you view the site on a desktop, use the links in the box to the write of the opening paragraph to skip to the method you want. I’d suggest converting to PDF. If you view this on a phone, you’ll need to scroll to the right place.
      I hope this helps!
