A B S T R A C T :

Kissell's book is an indispensable reference and resource and we recommend it highly. It represents an insightful text on various aspects of using Nisus Writer Version 4.1 today. It belongs in the library of readers interested in using this program in their work.

The primary message of the text is an approach to incorporating Nisus Writer v4.1 into one's word processing activities. The guiding outlook throughout is on the user of Nisus Writer and interaction techniques to enhance the utility of the application. This book examines how and when to use the manifold features of Nisus Writer. Also included is a CD-ROM containing a time-expiring (90-days) version of Nisus Writer, many useful macros, and other assorted mechanisms, along with a special offer for readers of The Nisus Way to extend their purchase to the non-expiring version.

While we realize many readers use TeX, LaTeX, BibTeX, etc. in their professional document preparation work, we also realize there are as many readers in-need of a word-processing application that goes beyond Microsoft Word. This is a wonderful program and merits serious consideration.
