    I learned Greg Notehand back in the 1960s in high school It was a useful and engaging skill to acuire I purchased a copy of Gregg Notehand 1960 copyright I'm always looking for intellectually engaging activities both skills acuired in the past and new topics Revisiting Gregg Notehand is WONDERFUL It enriches listening concentration reading writing and organizational skills It's fun It's easy to learn and re learn because the text is so clear and provides than ample practice material I would think learning Gregg Notehand would be just as valuable as is re learning it is for those of us who had studied it earlier
