To Partick Pruisken, et al:
A 500-page manual makes sense considering the learning
curve it has to shorten. Most of us require two to six weeks
of training and practice to become functional drivers, and this
after 14 to 16 years of observing other drivers. I'll trade
a 500-page manual for a 16-year learning curve any time.
