This memoir focuses chiefly on the story of WordStar, the pioneering word processing software for personal computers that was ahead of its time. A series of unfortunate circumstances--personal illness, management ineptitude, clash of egos, changing business conditions--converged to bring low a once-promising and shining venture.
