But the problem is I am typing the text into the *.tex file on an iMAC using TexShop.   The *.pdf file it produces is allright but the letters are so small on the *.tex file that I can hardly see them.   Maybe the problem is in TexShop or the iMAC but I cannot find any way to increase the size of the letters.

surely any pdf reader would allow you to zoom in? or produce two
versions of the book one formatted for screen and one for paper.
