Each chapter plans on breaking down my own application I've created, going through the bits and pieces, as well as just getting started creating your very own Marionette application.

// Note from me! //

Hey guys, as you can see, the book is listed as 100%. I feel that the work is done. I need to move on to other projects. I have other work to do.

If there is anything that you feel fuzzy on, and would like me to take a better stab at, please, I encourage you to reach out to me and let me know. 

I will do what I can do to rework things.

Thanks for everything !

~ Jack
