Missing Manuals


Microsoft deserves credit. So do Apple and Adobe. In fact, almost every major software company has pitched in by selling increasingly sophisticated software without a printed manual. Instead, after paying $300 or more for the software, you're expected to learn these complex programs by reading electronic help screens. But online help is no substitute for a real manual. Ever try to flip between help topics? Or try to read them over breakfast? Wish you could underline, or at least bookmark what you found? Ah. We thought so.

That's why David Pogue — award-winning how-to author and computer columnist for the New York Times — teamed with O'Reilly Media, Inc. to launch Pogue Press. We're dedicated to producing sterling, beautifully written manuals for popular consumer software and hardware products.
