Excerpt from Stein-Shorthand Manual: High-Speed Shorthand for High-Speed Transcribing (THE SYSTEM) The Vowels that have been such a great hindrance in the other systems, and have confused even bright students, are by this system entirely omitted in all but a very few words, and still indicated as clearly as daylight, by the positions herein used, making these positions a guide of great value in both writing and reading the shorthand. By using only the Vowel-Key as a guide, students begin position work at once, instead of using a mass of vowel-marks. The STEIN vowel-key is the greatest advance ever made in shorthand. Its value consists in its wonderful simplicity and easy application, which makes it such a helpful feature that it reduces the Stenographer's mental strain by at least one-half. STEIN shorthand is a simplification of Pitman shorthand. The strokes remain the same except thick N which is now used for both NG and NK. The Circle and Hook rules remain the same except that all L hooks are large, allowing the principle of the large L hook on N and M to become a uniform rule on all strokes, and thereby placing the R hook on the same side as the L hook, making only a difference of size, which is more apparent to the eye, while the old method of swinging the stroke around was always confusing. STEIN shorthand is not only a little ahead of all other systems - it is MILES ahead of them. The difference is, as between DAY and NIGHT. (THE BOOK) The book presents not only a far superior system, but in the method of presenting the different principles it is also the most pedagogical textbook on Shorthand. It covers a series of 151 lessons and 38 Reviews (one review after every set of four lessons), making a total of 189 lessons. (TIME TO COMPLETE book) At one lesson a day, and counting 20 school days to a month, this book can be completed in 9 1/2 months. At two lessons a day, it can be completed in 4 3/4 months. (SPEED WORK) This book should be followed by about 190 lessons of Letter and Miscellaneous Dictation for obtaining the proper practice to write shorthand as easy and as flowing as longhand, that is, without mental strain. (LENGTH of SHORTHAND COURSE) At ONE lesson a day, in a High School, the shorthand course should never take less than two years, to make High-Grade Stenographers in a day-class. At TWO lessons a day, it should not take less than 9 1/2 months. In an Evening Class, at only three lessons a week, a student might possibly do easy stenographic work at the end of two years, but it should take three or four years to be equal to a day-school graduate.
