Here's the problem. The material I'm trying to condense takes up somewhere around 90 pages in a double-spaced font with generous margins. Tighten the margins and change the font and it's down to perhaps 30 pages. Cut out a lot of the really detailed analysis and it's down to 20 pages. We still have to lose a lot of material, and the difficult part is to keep enough that the reviewers will still get the idea.
We still have a lot of work to do.
