The Telephone Book: Helpful Hints for Using Your New Phone, is designed after a vintage telephone directory which pages flip through the alphabet. Each of the twenty pages has a vintage photograph with a helpful hint to using your new phone. Such as, "When you finish dialing, wait a moment and you will hear a burr--burr--sound. This means that the telephone you have called is ringing. Be sure to let the telephone ring long enough to give the other person time to answer."
