Thanks.  Via http://www.abebooks.com/ purchased a copy from Green 
Earth Books in Portland, Oregon for less than 8 dollars, price+postage. 
Just noticed that there was a second edition.  This is probably the first.
Interesting reading.  Hopefully some of the conditions described have 
improved since it was written.

Googling "The Zen of Palm - Designing products for Palm OS" gives nothing 
but citations of your citation!  Google hasn't put it in their electronic library?

In any case, my idea is nothing too special.  Enhance the good aspects 
of the Oberon TUI and remove dependence on less efficient aspects.

Thanks for the references,             ... Peter E.
