Very simple to read. Was recommend for a class I'm currently taking on Technical Writing. A few examples, but not many. Could have been useful.

I got this as required material for a technical writing class, but I really learned a lot from it. It is well written and organized. I would recommend for anyone who is interested in technical writing!

HASH(0xa850f54c) out of 5 stars I hated the class and hated the book Dec 18 2014

I had to have this for a class. I hated the class and hated the book. To be honest, I don't see its use, but someone who was actually a technical writer for a living might benefit. Other than that, just no.
