Small fonts are a real issue for a great many of us. I've pretty much stopped buying printed books for the simple reason that most of them are utterly eye-strain inducing and now do 90% of my reading on a Kindle where I can have it as large as I like.
And I love a bit of white-space in code, too, regardless of font-size - it makes things much easier to read.
i dunno but to me dosnt seems to much of an issue really,it got published online and thats more then some people get.
And as of size i read responses below, about,most computers has zoom in if not the the software
just my humble opinion
is “the de facto standard searching algorithm for P2P (peer-to-peer) networks on the Internet.” Kademlia is a protocol specification for decentralizing peer-to-peer network operations, efficiently storing and retrieving data across the network.
Okay Marc, I'd like a bit of context, if you don't mind. How did you wander into this subject matter such that a book popped out?

I've been interested in the tech behind things like cryptocurrency (blockchain, proof of work, Merkle trees, etc.) and P2P was one of the puzzle pieces. Also, supposedly "distributed data" is one of the emerging newfangled waves and I wanted to learn more about how that all works, pros and cons, etc.
I poked around looking at various P2P implementations and the Kademlia Protocol kept popping up as the defacto standard for distributing data across a P2P network. I thought, cool, how hard can this be. Riiight.
What I found was the typical morass of contradictory protocols (there was an earlier version of Kademlia that seems to have been removed from the web at this point but that a variety of people appear to have implemented), contradictory/confusing statements within the protocol definition itself, and a LOT of really bad (buggy or just plain unfinished) open source implementations.
The standard implementation in the *nix world appears to be libp2p with various language ports (who knows how well implemented) but none in C#. Ah ha! Opportunity!
So what I thought would be a simple and short article for CodeProject turned out to be a large investigation to resolve all the conflicts and confusion and understanding the "why" behind various seemingly simple sounding algorithms became a 100 page tome (first cut), so I decided to see if SyncFusion would be interested in it. And they were!
