Excellent Self-Teaching Guide 6 Mar. 2007
By Osgaldor J. Storm - Published on
Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
Speedwriting Shorthand is a highly practical, easy-to-learn system of manual, alphabetic shorthand. In high school, I took traditional Gregg Shorthand (Diamond Jubilee Series) and I was never able to get above 70 wpm with it and made tons of errors. With Speedwriting, I was able to quickly teach myself the whole system and now write it effortlessly and very rapidly with virtually no errors.

By taking basic shorthand priniciples and incorporating them into a writing system based on English cursive handwriting, Pullis has streamlined the process considerably. There are only a small handfull of non-English strokes in this system, but they are easily incorporated and highly memorable. Notes taken in Speedwriting are easy to read too; my wife was able to read a basic sentence without knowing anything about Speedwriting because it's based on English letters you already know how to write.

If you want an edge over your classmates, get this book and learn Speedwriting. In just an hour or two a night, you'll learn and be able immediately to start using Speedwriting. From the very first lesson, there is good, very practical stuff you can use NOW (instead of six months from now like with Gregg shorthand).

I have all the Speedwriting Shorthand textbooks and this book is, by far, the best of the lot. Everything you need all under one cover. I would also recommend against buying the new copy, it's just far too expensive for what you get. Get a used copy instead and dig right in, you'll be very glad you did!

Pullis the best method of speedwriting 25 Mar. 2007
By Penny Winkle - Published on
Format: Hardcover
I think the Pullis method of speedwriting is the best. This book is very well written and organized. It uses the minimal amount of letters, goes by sound, eliminates middle word vowels, has brief forms, has abbreviations, and you can teach yourself in no time at all. The system uses the alphabet and no funny squiggley symbols. For practice I watch TV and take notes and am shocked at how fast I can do it. I'm able to concentrate on what people are saying and not struggling to remember what they said. Great for taking phone messages too. There is also a speedwriting dictionary.

Incomplete 28 May 2013

Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
This volume is good but there is no student handbook that came with it making checking results difficult. HOWEVER the price was great and I'm pretty happy with it. Th reason I bought the book is because I've been comparing speedwriting books to see which offers the most help. This one had some very interesting shortcuts which I will use in combination with other similar books.
