From the Author:

The instruction booklet that came with my cell phone inspired me to write this book. To operate the automatic dialer, it said: "To search telephone numbers, enter specific number(s) in the initial display and press Soft Key 1[OK]. By Selecting Find on the sub-menu, the Entry List will appear. Information linked to the entry will appear upon selecting a telephone number for which details are desired."

Got that? I sure didn't! Remember the movie Network with people saying "I'm mad as [heck] and I'm not gonna take it anymore"? Well, that was my reaction. So, putting my background in adult education to work, I wrote "The Instruction Writer's Guide: How to Explain How to Do Anything" in the hope that instruction writers everywhere would read it, follow it, and keep the rest of us from pulling our hair out.
