"What a fantastic textbook! Concise and practical, A Strategic Guide to Technical Communication is an outstanding text that provides theoretically well-grounded, pedagogically sound, and hands-on guidance to creating effective professional documents. It's one of those rare textbooks students will want to keep on their book shelves well beyond their graduation."--Doreen Starke-Meyerring, McGill University "Clear, accessible, and immaculately written, A Strategic Guide to Technical Communication is a superb choice for the introductory technical communication course. The organization of the text is excellent, guiding students through style and document design to the major genres of technical discourse, ethics, and usability testing, concluding with impressive chapters on online documentation and oral presentations. Without question, A Strategic Guide to Technical Communication is my text of choice for our undergraduate technical communication course."--Joseph Little, Niagara University "Intelligently organized and informed by the latest in theory and research, A Strategic Guide to Technical Communication is a comprehensive and user-friendly textbook. Instructors will appreciate its solid grounding in theory and research, its many examples of student writing, and its helpfully integrated in-class exercises, lab assignments, and suggestions for major projects. Students will like the book's hands-on approach and practical strategies for writing, designing, and testing documents for real users in both traditional and online environments."--Jo-Anne Andre, University of Calgary "A Strategic Guide to Technical Communication provides clear and focused instruction on important elements of technical writing, including genre, structure, purpose, usability, visuals, and technical prose. My students found the explanations and guidance offered consistently accessible and useful. I appreciated the well-grounded theoretical approach, as well as the pedagogical support. The second edition strengthens an already valuable textbook by bringing genres to the fore, treating ethics more distinctly, and focusing on issues specific to technical prose, particularly clarity and plain language. The use-value of this textbook is outstanding!"--Patricia Lynne, Framingham State University "A Strategic Guide to Technical Communication covers clearly and well the main genres of technical writing--further, it includes in-depth, thought-provoking, up-to-date sections on topics such as navigating ethical issues; setting up, conducting, and reporting usability studies; and writing online documents. This book would work equally well for a technical communication course and for courses in business or professional writing: its rhetorical perspective and wide-ranging coverage go well beyond the features common to bestselling technical writing texts."--Kelly Belanger, Virginia Polytechnic Institute and State University "A Strategic Guide to Technical Communication provides clear and focused instruction on important elements of technical writing, including genre, structure, purpose, usability, visuals, and technical prose. My students found the explanations and guidance offered consistently accessible and useful. I appreciated the well-grounded theoretical approach, as well as the pedagogical support. The second edition strengthens an already valuable textbook by bringing genres to the fore, treating ethics more distinctly, and focusing on issues specific to technical prose, particularly clarity and plain language. The use-value of this textbook is outstanding!" -- Patricia Lynne, Framingham State University

"A Strategic Guide to Technical Communication covers all the important concepts in an undergraduate Technical Writing class. It has chapters on necessary forms and formats and also pays a good deal of attention to the nuances of persuasive writing and what constitutes clear technical prose.

I highly recommend it." -- Andrea Clark Mason, Washington State University "A Strategic Guide to Technical Communication provides clear and focused instruction on important elements of technical writing, including genre, structure, purpose, usability, visuals, and technical prose.
