Summary
  • Handbook for Technical Writing is an indispensable guide that will help you write and edit clearer, more forceful, more persuasive memos, letters, technical reports and documents. In 272 clearly, concisely written pages loaded with dozens of illustrations, examples, working assignments, and self-tests, the Handbook takes you step-by-step along the path to more effective communication. Section 1 shows how to match your objectives for a specific piece of communication to
  • the needs and objectives of your audience. Section 2 discloses the six key steps you can use to make everything you write the best it can be: Planning; Organizing; Outlining; Rough Draft; Revision; and Final Draft. Annotations throughout highlight the most important and useful points and ideas. Section 3 gives a point-by-point analysis of every kind of technical document. Memos, reports, technical manuals, product operating instructions; and abstracts - you'll learn how
  • to write every kind of document to achieve maximum impact. Section 4 gives fully executed examples of technical communications written by professional technical writers, with detailed explanations of how and why they communicate so effectively. A "Rules of the Road" Appendix of the basics of grammar and style rounds out this invaluable reference to help smooth your way to more polished and professional documents. In business and the technical disciplines the importance
  • of having great ideas is surpassed only by the ability to communicate those ideas - clearly, efficiently, forcefully, persuasively. Handbook for Technical Writing is the one reference book that will give you the breadth of the big picture and the depth of detail to ensure your success every time you write
