An adequate intro for beginners April 8 2007
By Janice King - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
A college-level textbook, this is an adequate but brief introduction to the types of writing most technology workers will be expected to produce on the job. Although the book includes a unique chapter on writing as part of a team, it does not cover two topics that many engineers and scientists will face at work: 1) writing product descriptions, white papers, and other input for marketing and sales materials; 2) how to be an effective subject expert when working with a professional technical writer or copywriter.

Pretty helpful Nov. 26 2008

Finkelstein does an alright job with this book. It includes a lot of examples to base your paper off of. It shows you business letters, proposals, technical mechinism reports. tech process reports, technical diffinitions, progress reports, resume stuff, formal letters, memos, etc.

It was required for my technical communications class for engineers. It's definately something to keep on the shelf for reference.

easy to read Feb. 15 2011
By Brenda - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
This book is very easy to read. The author tends to use humorous situations as examples. I'm using this for a class, and the teacher allows any edition. I have noticed that it doesn't have the Team Writing or Business Writing chapters, and some examples are different from those of later editions, but other than that, the approach and content are the same.
Decent book, good info June 16 2014

Had to buy this for an engineering class. It was very clear, easy to read, and provided good examples of proper technical communication via several mediums (writing professional emails, instruction manuals, research papers/articles, preparing presentations, etc.; the list goes on). All in all, this was a helpful book that I will probably not be trying to sell to freshmen any time soon.
Definatly a pocket book May 8 2014

Short, sweet and to the point. It explains the concepts with examples and breaks down those examples as simple, fast and concise as possible.
