It is not an instruction manual on who to achieve a particular writing style - many other books are available for exactly that.
This small book tries to guide you to figure out what it might be about your writing that you don't like.
Examples of particular common problems are provided so that you can get a feel for which ones you might be experiencing.
Practical matters such as light, posture, writing surface, paper and writing implements are addressed.
Relaxation exercise are provided.
A training model alphabet of characters ( and now to form them ) is provided. This is not meant as an exact script to duplicate, but more as a good, practical start point for developing your own style.
I found this to be a very good resource to enable to figure out what I wanted / needed to change, and how to go about it.
This is the only book I have found for improving everyday handwriting. During my last job I found my own writing had become difficult for me to read. I was writing too fast and using a pencil because of the nature of my job. My letters had lost a lot of their shapes, were badly spaced and the long strokes leaned every which way. It took me surprisingly little time to understand what was wrong and to decide what changes to make (less than 3 weeks). In the past, I resorted to calligraphy books which, I now know was a mistake for everyday writing and was a contributary factor to my deteriorating style.
This book helped me to easily diagnose what went wrong and how to set about improving my writing. The book leaves you to decide what you need to do and how much effort you need to put in. For myself, I decided to go through most of the exercises and experiment with different pens. I like the fact that the training alphabet is meant to be used for a short while and then discarded for a more personal style. The samples of handwriting helped me to understand that there is more than one way of making a letter and that I was free to adopt any style that suited my hand. I still have ongoing work to do to develop my style but have now moved on from the book.
I am sure that you will find this book of interest and I recommend it whether you need to use it or just want to read it out of interest.
