Teach Yourself Better Handwriting Summary


Teach Yourself Better Handwriting by Rosemary Sassoon

The way we write mirrors our mood and character. It is the way we project ourselves to the world - and other people often judge us by our handwriting. The aim of "Teach Yourself Better Handwriting" is for people with any style of writing to be able to relate to the book and learn from it. This practical and informative book will help you to improve your handwriting and develop a mature and individual style. It is specifically written for adults and uses self-diagnosis test to identify problems, and 'before' and 'after' examples to illustrate common faults. This book covers everything from holding a pen, to the difficulties that left-handers face and problems that may be caused by medical conditions. "Teach Yourself Better Handwriting" does not try and impose any particular handwriting model. Instead, it offers alternatives and encourages you to experiment and choose the one that suits you best. This edition includes a revised introduction and epilogue, as well as even more practical exercises to assist the reader.
