I guess whether it's worth the money all depends on the quality of the
annotations, then.. :-)

As another poster stated, what's missing to jumpstart new users (in the
few hours/days before they give up) is a document that describes the
different things that you can do with screen and for each of them how
you set it up .. helping them build their .screenrc as they go along and
understanding what they're doing.

I was hoping the book above took this approach but from what you're
saying, this is not not the case.
