Observations off the cuff:

1. You don't define evolution, which would seem critical as a first step to a book on evolution, and

2. Your emphasis seems to be more about abiogenesis than evolution per se

How first life occurred is irrelevant to evolution.

Enjoy

Evolution still not defined
1. You don't define evolution, ...

... I basically take it to be macro-evolution. The usual definition.

Wrong one both accounts, but okay for the purpose of discussion: now define “ macro-evolution” and give what you think is the “usual definition” (usual to whom? Scientists or Creationists?)

I give a full explanation that abiogenesis ONLY HAS RELEVANCE TO EVOLUTION THEORY. ...

Irrelevant then to a book on evolution — your book is about abiogenesis and not evolution.

As Tangle points out evolution only occurs after there is life to evolve. At this point it doesn’t matter how life started for us to study how it has evolved since that point.

We know for a fact that life exists, so we can take that as a starting point to study how life evolves.

Enjoy
