"Targeted at the first-year engineering or techical writing student, this comprehensive textbook takes a user-friendly approach organized around typical workplace situations and their impact on communication. The exercised, worksheets, and writing prompts are varied and complete enough to allow the instructor to customize assignments for a particular class or student. It provides plenty of material for the instructor to work with, and is certainly worthy of serious consideration for course adoption."--Technical Communication
