Published in 1987 it brought with it perhaps the best reviewer quote ever in computer publishing. Writing in the September 1987 edition of Acorn User, reviewer Bill Penfold said, “This is the first computer book I’ve read in bed for pleasure rather than to cure insomnia.”  Love it, Mr Penfold.

Speaking on BBC Radio London, John Allen said, “It’s very good… I liked it very much.”

This is the most comprehensive tutorial and reference guide written about the VIEW wordprocessor.

This PDF is provided free-of-charge and without warranty as part of my Retro Computing series of titles covering a number of the popular 1980s home computers.
