"As a DEVONThink user for over 10 years and having built a personal database containing over 30,000 items, I would consider myself a reasonably sophisticated user of the app. However, buying David Sparks’ Field Guide was like being given an intricately detailed map and a high-beam flashlight to take with me on the journey into the wilderness that DEVONThink, with its overwhelming array of features, can sometimes be."

- Tom M.
