Steve Delanghe (zulu -at- CIX -dot- COMPULINK -dot- CO -dot- UK) reports:
>> _Developing Online Help for Windows_

>I'm told this is now out of print (as are other useful titles like

Fortunately, a friend of mine is a development editor at SAMS and was able
to dig up a copy for me. The latest version of this book is retitled to
_Developing Online Help for Windows 95_ (International Thompson Computer
Press, ISBN 185032-211-2. International Thompson has a UK address, Steve:
Berkshire House 168-173, High Holborn, London WCIV 7AA.)

As I cleaned out my office at my last job, I considered stealing the copy of
_The Design of Everyday Things_ that was on my bookshelf. It *was* a useful
title. Now that I know it is out of print, I sort of wish I had bent my
character a bit. (When I unpacked my boxes at this job, I found that my
wife had unknowingly packed a couple other books belonging to my previous
company. Maybe I should have asked her to pack the bookshelf containing
_The Design of Everyday Things_! :->)
