A quick usability tip is to write out numerical facts in digits, not words, so people scanning the article for facts can find them more easily (http://www.useit.com/alertbox/writing-numbers.html).
600 words is a bit much to read, at this point in my life, it takes a month to get through a 200 page novel. But it does sound like these books could be good reference guides.
