Geoff asked about the proliferation of independent manuals for major
software (Pagemaker, WordPerfect, Word for Windows, etc.). IMHO, while
some of these may be essentially rehashes of the same old, same old, many
of them do present additional tips and ideas for getting the most out of
the software. Some include diskettes of macros or other additions to
augment the original programs. Frequently the orientation is moved from
that of a reference manual to that of a tutorial, which can be a big
help for the novice user.

The body of every organization is structured from four kinds of
bones. There are the wishbones, who spend all their time wishing
someone would do the work. Then there are the sawbones, who do
all the talking, but little else. The knucklebones knock every-
thing anybody else tries to do. Fortunately, in every organization
there are also the backbones, who get under the load and do most
of the work. --Leo Aikman, _On Bones_
