I have read many manuals in my life, ranging from manuals on how to mend boats to ones telling me how to use a computer (nowadays, of course, the computer itself tells us what we should do). Gradually, I developed something of a passion for the manual and started to draw up my own, based on my observations of daily life. When Celso Loducca asked me to write a book, I thought: Why not collect together all the manuals I've written over the years and publish them? The result is the book you're holding in your hands now.
