In making his case that technical writing is not and should not be
entertaining Bill Hartzer says:
"If Technical Writing was entertaining
reading, 99 percent of Americans would know how to program their VCRs!"
That's exactly the point Bill; if user manuals weren't so deadly dull, dry
and unimaginative, if they better served the needs of the user, people would
know how to program their VCRs.
