Key Benefit: Any living language is a growing, flexible instrument. Its rules are constantly changing by virtue of the way it is used by its live, independent speakers and writers. Nevertheless, at any point in a language's development, certain conventions of usage are in force, and violating them can brand writers as uneducated and make their communications difficult to interpret. With a clear, readable style, this book discusses every major aspect of technical writing. Additionally, as electronic technology becomes more widely available and continues to dominate the workplace, people have a growing need to understand and work with electronic communication. Key Topics: From report writing to document design, from job hunting to giving oral reports, this book sets the standards for writing and reporting technical information in the workplace. This handy guide explores the world of electronic communication, from e-mail and electronic discussion groups to file transfer protocol (ftp) and World Wide Web sites in the workplace. Market: This is the ideal resource for anyone who has to write any kind of report in their profession, especial those in technical fields.
