Excerpt from Pitmanic Shorthand: A Complete Text-Book, on the American-Pitman System

On account of the great number of real and imitation systems of Shorthand there certainly is no need for another. There are already too many systems which are nothing more than some standard method of writing Shorthand slightly modified so as to give the promulgator an opportunity to pose as the author of a "new" system. Very seldom are these so-called new systems any improvement over the ones from which they are derived. There will, doubtless, continue to be those who think they have discovered wherein they can modify some minor details in the system of Shorthand which they have learned. Having done this, they will claim to have devised "a new and greatly improved system of stenography." The writer has no sympathy for such people.

While there is no need for a new system of Shorthand there is, however, a great need of improvement in the preparation of Shorthand text-books and in the methods of teaching the subject. During the past few decades there has been a wonderful advance in the methods of giving instruction in most branches of education. Writers of Shorthand text-books especially seem to have felt but slightly the effect of this development and have in the presentation of the subject often failed to embody the best educational methods.
