Adopting a direct, functional, and practical approach, the book presents an exhaustive treatment of the basics of technical communication, both oral and written. Divided into five parts, the text comprehensively covers listening, speaking, reading, and writing techniques as well as contemporary communication media. In addition to offering plenty of practical tips and attractive technical document samples, the book provides tremendous support for soft skills laboratory sessions through the CD. With its up-to-date coverage and practical orientation, the book not only serves the purpose of being a textbook for courses on technical and professional communication but also satisfies the requirement of finishing schools. It can also be used as a reference for training programs offered by business houses and industries. New to the second edition: New chapters: Introduction to communication, Phonetics, Effective Speaking, Listening and Speaking, Reading, Technical Writing, Referencing and Styling, Introduction to Modern Communication Media, Vocabulary, English Grammar CD containing PowerPoint presentations, training videos, interactive exercises, and text supplements to support the text.

Review:


"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
