This book was issued to me while working as a consultant for Northern Telecom (Nortel.) They standardized on this editor, as it was the most efficient for their environment. The above description of the back cover pretty much tells it all. Mine is an earlier edition but the picture is still the same. The book comes with a Lay Flat Binding. There is a Short Content and several page Table of Contents. Also the GNU Manifesto, Glossary, Key (Character) Index, Command and Function Index, Variable Index and Concept Index. You seldom need to go outside this reference Manual.

4.0 out of 5 stars An Emacs manual by the guy who wrote the program 14 April 2008
By Cowley Harris - Published on
The manual has lots of useful information about the best ways to use all the different features of the EMACS tool. It is well writen and is an easy read. However all of the information present is also on-line for free or is only a C-h ? command away. But you should buy the book away for three reasons.

1. Buying the book supports the GNU guys.

2. It is convenient to have the book by the computer with lots of post-its notes marking important chapters and examples.

3. It increases your nerd-points by having it on your bookshelf.
