'In this helpful & entertaining book the author of the classic, On Writing Well, explains that he has always had a love of paper and a fear of mechanical objects. He describes how he confronted his hang-ups, got a word processor, taught himself to use it and gradually overcame his sense of inferiority to the machine. He explains how the word processor - by enabling him to revise his work instantly on a screen - has changed his lifelong methods of writing, rewriting and editing... It explains how the word processor will save time and money in an office or a corporation and predicts that it will soon be our primary writing tool...' (from the rear cover).
