"[Consumers] will find the fine 'pocket references' produced by O'Reilly to be compact and affordable."
-- James Cox, The Computer Shelf: Midwest Book Review

"Cutting to the chase, this little book, which runs to a slim 58 pages, covers pretty much every aspect of using Emacs...an invaluable reference. What the book does is collect together all the information in a handy 58 page reference tome that will save you trawling through heaps of documentation for that one elusive command. If you're short of cash, or just want a handy reference to sling into your backpack or pocket to help steer you where you want to go, or if you're a hardened Emacs veteran who occasionally suffers brainfade, the 'GNU Emacs Pocket Reference' is a terrific little book. Highly recommended." --Steve Coe, Canada Computes, May 10, 2001


"I love the O'Reilly series of pocket references, and I use GNU Emacs day in and day out, far more than any other development tool, so I was surprised that I didn't already have this. It's already paid for itself by reminding me of the filename format to use when editing via FTP." --UPSTAIRS AT DRY CREEK, May 19, 2001
