I wonder, do any of you feel that FM has a specific workflow? I have
written 3 (and a bit) books now, I worked with Mick on two of them, and
I feel that there is something really core to FM about workflow. Trying
to condense this might be helpful. From my perceptive the FM method:

  * It's results in something quite linear
  * The beginning should be super simple - an overview of basic
    functionality, orientation style.
  * The main chapters should be structured by day to day USE of software
    and the building of skills, using real life examples often.
  * We can assume that installation was done by someone else, esp if a
    web-app, and put that at the end with advanced chapters.
  * Not a single step should be skipped - every click needed should be noted
  * The language should be relaxed, clear to second-language English
    speakers (avoid metaphores)
