A Guided Tour of Personal Computing


A Guided Tour of Personal Computing


Unlike the terse and confusing monitor that greeted users when they turned on the computer, the Exidy Sorcererís manuals tended be informative and well written.  The Guided Tour of Personal Computing is particularly good in this regard, featuring 70 pages of instructions on how to set up and use the Sorcerer.  Guiding users on this journey is the Wizard of Exidy, a friendly looking cartoon wizard who offers helpful advice throughout the manual.  The overall friendliness of the manual is no mere coincidence, it was one of the Paul Terrellís (who came up with the original concept for the Sorcerer) main objectives.  Paul wanted the Sorcerer to be user-friendly beyond anything that was currently on the market and for that to happen it needed a friendly user manual.  This is one of two manuals that were packaged with the system.
