Some one recently asked "How long can Word documents be
before problems arise?" In my experience, it is possible to work with a
single 100 page document and link it to others. As a practical matter, a
project management matter, instead of scrolling and print previewing and
foooling around trying to find where you were, it is much better to write
and edit chapters, or segments, say 20 pages at a time. Risk goes down if
all your eggs are not in one basket.
