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!

I love doing technical reports on the job, but I never took a college course on the subject. This book made the course go very well. This book is a keeper for the rest of my career.
