For me, the highest peak (or lowest trough) of Manual was the trees-worth they included with (IIRC) Logic 9, which was the 1 inch thick main manual, plus about 3 other thinner ones, all wrapped up in a thick black box that you could probably have happily driven over with a tank
That was the first Logic Studio, Logic 8, I believe. Yes, I still have that mammoth box set.
When I went the the Apple Store on Regent Street to get Logic 9, I was much relieved to find it was a small DVD carry size box with only a getting started manual.
Actually, they had literally received their shipment of the new Logic 9 an hour or so earlier, and hadn’t yet put it out on display... they had to go and dig it out for me so I think I was probably one of the first people to get the retail package in London. It wasn’t yet an online AppStore purchase at that time.
