"When I get a car, I get a user manual to go with it. Yet when I meet new people, which are infinitely more complicated than cars, I don't have a manual of any kind. I need to figure out how to work with them trial and error."

Personal user manuals intend to flatten the "learning curve" for people with whom you work. I like this idea, so I decided to write one for myself. If we’ve worked together and you find this manual self-unaware, please let me know!
