Almost Perfect, How a Bunch of Regular Guys
Built WordPerfect Corporation,
was originally published by Prima Publishing in 1994. It is the story of
the rise and fall of WordPerfect Corporation from my point of view. The
book sold almost 10,000 copies and is now out of print. The copy
published here is almost identical to my original manuscript. In
this version I have corrected two factual errors, fixed a hand full of typos, and
eliminated the last-minute Prima edits. The epilogue includes the
Afterword from the Prima edition and a few thoughts on what happened to
WordPerfect Corporation after I left.
I welcome links to this site, however, I ask that you

I hope you enjoy the book. Thanks for stopping by.
