And it's only proper to fully credit this page itself -- the book's description above is from Vanishing Inc.'s page (slightly modified). The "Contents" list is pulled from what I believe to be the main title-pages within the book; there isn't an actual Table of Contents so I went with what I picked out to be the overarching topics.
