after reviewing your guide, i can only feel grateful that someone has gone to the trouble to write such a lucid and thoughtful piece that we will be able to use to educate those who propose to help us. i know from experience that tech writing is harder than it looks. this is a masterful job. the writing clear and professional looking. it warns strongly against the kind of over-enthusiasm, my own included, that used to get me in trouble. i regret that my current income no longer allows me to pay for massage. as a result, i have to one to show for professional comment, but i will pass it on to someone who does still get massage.
