The book that you have in your hands – is about shorthand. Yes, I said that word… shorthand! Please don’t throw this book down now, please read on; stop running out the shop, ignore that [back] button on your browser – scream silently if you have to. This book is again, yes, I will say that word – is all about: shorthand. “Why?” You gasp in horror, “Why on earth!”


And stop pulling that face; it’s not your typical book on shorthand – not that many have been written recently for that matter. Anyway, it has more to do with technology than writing, but there is a dose of shorthand thrown in, and for good reason. Although, the end bit does get a bit shorthandy, I must add. Look, I’ll get straight to the point, it’s actually all about the future and I mean that in all honesty.

This book is about modern device shorthand, because believe it or not, shorthand is not dead. In fact, it’s alive and kicking, and you just don’t realise it; yet. The book will explain how we are already trying to use shorthand in a manner with our gadgets but failing as we have no language in use. It will show you a different way of how we can interact with our devices using: ShortPen Shorthand. A simple writing system which involves skipping and swapping letters, and reducing the outlines of the alphabet.

A simple control language where you don’t need 6 months or even 6 weeks to grasp, more like 6 days or even 6 hours.

Start invoking the shortcut – ShortPen!

Quirky book with a new angle on writing in shorthand and interacting with computers and phones. The many illustrations were a bonus.
