How pages fit together
The way books work is that there is always a next and previous page link at the bottom so you can easily read it in book order. However the first page is really a Table of Contents so once you have generated an important new page deep in the tree, also link it directly from the TOC. So for example at the beginning I am on the TOC and I can add a child page (say the glossary). Most likely I will want to add other pages in front of it so I go to the TOC (or other higher page) and add a child there.
