FOCUS POINTS

Yes, these are both big documents, but the Sylves chapters make them manageable. Start with those chapters, then open the NRF files and skim through. I have posted an overview of PPD 8 which “boils down” that document even more than the Sylves chapter. Don’t get bogged down in the immensity and verbiage of both documents. Keep them in your personal library for future reference.
