Love it! Oct. 25 2012
By Jason M. Kovach - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
I'm a geek, a good looking geek, but a geek none-the-less and I really dig this book. Had to get it for a class as part of the Bachelor's of Science in Scientific & Technical Communication that I am pursuing, but I will NOT be selling this one back for cash after the semester. I have already used it outside of school to help me format my bradda's letter for promotion and it helped me with a project in another class. I read my copy almost a month before the semester started and didn't have to struggle, it was genuinely interesting and an excellent piece of technical communication.

Great textbook! Oct. 4 2012
By Cody - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
Easy to read and understand, well-organized, an has lots of helpful pictures of real documents for examples. Also provides tips about doing things primarily on computers. I actually find the reading interesting, instead of dry and boring like in most textbooks. Enough said.

I kept this book April 10 2014
By Droopdog - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
I bought this book for an online Technical Writing course. I was surprised to discover this book to be an immense wealth of useful knowledge. The book has real, functional examples of business writing. I don't like keeping textbooks, but I kept this one as a reference.

From the Author Feb. 16 2009
By Richard D. Johnson - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
All right, so I'm the author, and I'm writing a review of my own book. However, the person below with the negative review is mistakenly complaining about the supplier of the book, not the book itself. Yet, I cannot get Amazon to take off that comment. So, I'm countering with one of my own.

In each successive edition, I have incorporated the cutting edge of technology in communication. You won't find this depth of coverage in any other book. Plus, as a professor at a leading engineering and science university, I keep up with the issues and technologies that are just coming into our lives. You will find those issues addressed in this book in creative and innovative ways.

You are always welcome to contact me directly if you would like to know more about this book. Your students will find it very accessible and very useful. You will find it creative and easy to use.

Professor Richard Johnson-Sheehan, Purdue University.
