All forms of letters receive trenchant treatment in this landmark work, from the officious business letter to the whimsical postcard. In the book's forward, 1979 Postmaster General William F. Bolger sets forth convincing reasons why letter-writting is a valuable skill, explaining that "letters and cards are . . . the tools of our democracy." Most of all, though, All About Letters will convince you that letters are fun. Even Stevie Wonder, who can't read for shit, plugs letters in this book: "Even though I am a telephone freak, I really enjoy letters more!" Step-by-step the book walks even the most perplexed reader through the magical process of written communication. It provides reasons for writing, addresses to write for general information, instruction on how to write, a list of guides for further reading, and lots of pictures of famous people smiling warmly at the mere thought of letters. "Boy, letter-writting is fun" is the long overdue message of this book.
