Today’s Parola del Giorno is the adjective, daltonico, which means color blind (or colour blind in British English).  See the adjective used below in its context:

Mio padre è daltonico, non riesce a distinguere i colori delle calze senza chiedere a mia madre prima. Una volta è uscito da casa con le calze di due colori diversi.

My father is color blind and is not able to distinguish the colors of his socks without asking my mother first.  One time he went out with two different colored socks.


Ebook Update:

: I’m emailing the rest of the people who donated a link to download the pdf. If you have emailed me your Google account/Gmail account, you can download the pdf from Google Books — it is the same pdf file. Sit tight, I should be able to finish up today. The link will remain active until the 3rd of September.

: The first iBook update went through last night. Unfortunately, it didn’t correct some of the tables that were misaligned so I included those changes in update 1.4. Once that update goes through, the book will be complete, and you’ll have access to all the chapters!
