I liked this one slightly better than the other handwriting manual only because there is more explanation about why some letters can be connected and others can't and why it is a good thing to lift your pen while writing. I also found it more encouraging to the learner in developing a personal style. And he talks about adding small flourishes and gives examples to practice with. The actual practice exercises in this book are not as good as the other one though.
best calligraphy instruction that I have ever come across for the Italic hand....
This is my eternal primer for all my calligraphy students. Elegantly simple, hard to find at times, but worth it.

The basics are well covered. This book expanded my appreciation for calligraphy.
