-> One perspective that I haven't seen mentioned:
-> While a software is being produced, there is limited time to explore
-> understand how to apply the product to practical situations. There i
-> usually only time to understand how the product functionally, which i
-> so many product manuals are organized by menu items instead of by tas

It confounds me therefore to see the proliferation of third party books
available in the software store at the mall *before* the product itself
has actually been relased. PageMaker 5 is a great example -- there were
half a dozen books that told me all about a program I couldn't even buy
yet. Look at the number of Windows 95 books out there already, too --
though the pre-release version has only been available to the general
public for a few days now.
