A new type of manuals - the visual approach

Hi, my name is Edgar Rothermich, author of the best selling book series  “Graphically Enhanced Manuals (GEM)”

Graphically Enhanced Manuals are a new type of manual with a visual approach that helps you UNDERSTAND a program, not just LEARN it. No need to read through 500 of pages of dry text explanations. Rich graphics and diagrams help you to get that "aha" effect and make it easy to comprehend difficult concepts. The Graphically Enhanced Manuals help you master a program much faster with a much deeper understanding of concepts, features and workflows in a very intuitive way that is easy to understand.

  1. BulletThree formats

  2. No other manual is available in all three formats: PDF (from my website), interactive multi-touch iBooks (on Apple's iBooks Store), and printed book (on Amazon).

Interactive Multi-Touch iBooks

  1. No other manual is available in this

  2. enhanced iBook format. With that format, I include an extensive glossary, also with additional graphics. Every term throughout the content of the book is linked to the glossary term that lets you popup a window with the explanations without leaving the page you are currently reading. Every term lists all the entries in the book where it is used and links to other related terms.

  3. A truly engaged learning experience - the best learning experience available.

  1. BulletUp-to-date

  2. No other manual stays up to date with the current version of the app. Due to the rapid update cycles of applications nowadays, most books by major publishers are already outdated by the time they are released. I constantly update my books to stay current with the latest version of an app.

  1. BulletFree Updates (pdf, iBook only)

  2. No other manual provides free updates, I do. Whenever I update a book, I email a free download link of the pdf file to current customers. iBooks customers will receive an update notification and 24h after a new update, it will be available on Amazon. They are print-on-demand books, which means, whenever you order a book on Amazon, you get the most recent version and not an outdated one sitting in a publisher's warehouse.

  1. BulletFor Beginners and Advanced Users

  2. The graphical approach makes my manuals easy to understand for beginners, but still, the wealth of information and details provide plenty of material, even for the most advanced user.

  1. BulletComprehensive

  2. For any given feature, I list every available command so you can decide which one to use in your workflow. Some of the information is not even found in the app's documentation.

  1. BulletKnowledge and Understanding

  2. The purpose of my manuals is to provide the reader with the knowledge and understanding of an app that is much more valuable than just listing and explaining a set of features.

  1. BulletGraphics, Graphics, Graphics

  2. Every feature and concept is explained with rich graphics and illustrations that are not found in any other book or documentation. These are not just a few screenshots with arrows in it. I take the time to create unique diagrams to illustrate the concepts and workflows.
