-Boolean Data Objects
---------------------
+Combining Objects: Boolean Data Objects
+---------------------------------------
 
 A special type of data object is the *boolean* data object.
 It works only on three-dimensional objects.

 .. _faq-new-field:
 
+How do I modify whether or not ``yt`` takes the log of a particular field?
+----------------------------------------------------------------------
+
+``yt`` sets up defaults for many fields for whether or not a field is presented
+in log or linear space. To override this behavior, you can modify the
+``field_info`` dictionary.  For example, if you prefer that ``Density`` not be
+logged, you could type:
+
+.. code-block:: python
+    
+    pf = load("my_data")
+    pf.h
+    pf.field_info['Density'].take_log = False
+
+From that point forward, data products such as slices, projections, etc., would
+be presented in linear space. Note that you have to instantiate pf.h before you
+can access pf.field info.

 I added a new field to my simulation data, can ``yt`` see it?
