            “Press” can mean “printing press” or “trouser press” for ironing pants. When you iron clothes you can specify how much “starch” you want to have used; the more starch (which is literally vegetable starch), the stiffer the clothes. “No starch press” is a request you might give to a laundry service, meaning to have your pants ironed with no starch.

            $60 seems pretty normal for most tech books.

              This topic is right up my alley but looking at the ToC it seems kind of basic.
