Technical Communication Today remains the only text to fully centralize the computer in the technical workplace, presenting how writers use computers throughout their communication process.  Each chapter places an emphasis on the activity of producing effective documents by following a process approach that mirrors how professionals communicate in the technical workplace and how students learn in the classroom.

The text incorporates the newest technology-driven changes in workplace communication with in-depth discussions of email, instant messaging, working in virtual teams, making Web sites, blogging, podcasting, incorporating digital audio and visuals in documents, using PDAs, and negotiating ethical situations in electronic communication among many other available strategies and tools.

5.0 out of 5 stars Love it! Oct. 25 2012
By Jason M. Kovach - Published on Amazon.com
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.

5.0 out of 5 stars 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.

5.0 out of 5 stars 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.
