Hi everyone.
I won't take up too much time, I just have one question.
My company has several products all of which have a few books written
about them. As you might guess, the manager wants all of the books to look like
they were written by the same person (let's not go there). I am not
telling you this because I want to gripe/question about that issue. I am asking
what you think about writing the books using a term like typically or
generally, prior to telling what the reader/user should do. For example:
Typically, on a rainy day you use an umbrella.
rather than:
On a rainy day you use an umbrella.
My thoughts/concerns are that the former, when used in real life
situations, is too wishy-washy. If it is something that they may or may not do (it is
their call), I think they will be smart enough to not do it if they want
to, even if you use directive language.
