 - your book, your rules.


Your argument seems to say, don't put (presumably-deemed-)important info 
like this into chapters 2 or 3, as "those sections will be skipped by a lot 
of users". That would seem to be somewhat at odds with e.g. chapter-2 
being titled 'Important Information'.


Is there anything in those chapters - "2. Important Information", and 
ch-3 - that should be moved to elsewhere, since from what you say "those 
sections will be skipped by a lot of users", while at the same time it's 
(currently) deemed important info.
