Question on Alphabetic Systems

I am wondering which is the best of the alphabetic systems in existence?

Speedwriting seems to have earned the largest market share in its time. Zinman's Rapid Writing apparently had a following. I just found a paperback called Shortrite by Rae C. Greenburg that looks interesting. (Forkner has that add-vowels-after-consonants thing—shades of Pitman?)

When I was in high school, hoping to find some way of fulfilling my childhood dream of becoming a shorthand writer, I went through a book called Alphabet Shorthand by one A. Gerstenzang. It was utterly useless.

But there must be a half-way decent method out there. Anyone have suggestions on this?
