The manuscript of steelmaking book was sent to some renowned international technical book publishers in 1975. One of them forwarded it to some expert in an internationally renowned institution in India for comments and its worthiness for being published. Whoever was that, he recommended some changes in layout of that book. Having taught the subject for good length of time I had my own design of teaching htat subject and the book was written exactly in that fashion.
