Gregg Speed Practice Online

Hey found an excellent book online. I don’t know if its been mentioned on this site before. The whole book has been put on the following webpage

http://chestofbooks.com/languages/shorthand/Gregg-Speed-Practice/index.html

The website seems to host all kinds of free books online, but this is the only Gregg Shorthand one.

One of the most interesting sections is this one:

  1. Based on Chuck's recommendation I purchased this book last year. It's great! But be aware it is based on the 1902 Manual and provides a firm foundation for reporting shortcuts. Without Chuck's gracious assistance I would have been unable to recognize quite a few outlines in the chapter entitled Phrase Letters. If you're working with the book I'd recommend also working with a copy of the pre-1916 Phrase Book.

    It came as quite a surprise since I joined this very group to discover there was indeed a general movement to "simplify" Gregg BEFORE the 1949 Manual … the 1929 Anniversary Manual is an excellent exposition of the system which incorporates many simplifications, making the theory and rules more consistent than previously.
