One major point the author discussed was the danger of pH swings. He said that if the pH is a bit higher than the desirable range, most fish will adapt with very few problems. This is not true of all fish, say discus for example, but for most fish. He said it is much better to keep the pH stable versus constantly working to bring it up or bring it down. The continual fluctuations are what stress and often kill fish. Now, if you have an accurate reading of your pH and it is too low, you can do something like adding baked, baking soda which will raise the pH. If the pH is too high you can add peat moss, driftwood etc. to drop the pH.
I am going to do what this author suggested and put some tap water in a bucket and aerate it for two days. I am then going to compare the reading in both the tank and the bucket and note the differences. I am hoping that my pH is lower and in the desired range for the fish I want to keep.
