Review quote

"Technical and Professional Communication provides a great overview of the technical communication basics. The book follows its own advice for structure, layout, and design. Each section contains multiple visual examples. . . . It can also serve as a reference guide for common editing questions, such as rules for punctuation or how to use different citation styles. I recommend this book to anyone looking to learn technical communication and to anyone who is already in the field and looking to refresh or update their skills." --Timothy Esposito, in Technical Communicationshow more
