Anna,

I second the idea that you should have seen the manual before bidding on
the project. Maybe you can explain your feelings about the writing and the
technical inaccuracies to your client and ask him/her whether they want to
spend a little more to get a markedly improved book, or spend less to get
something no better than what they currently have. Let them make the
decision after you show them what's wrong with the current documentation.

Next time you work on a project to update an existing document, look at it
before you make any time and cost estimates.
