Review:

"I love the accessibility, brevity of entries, and layout of this book. Many of my students keep the text long after the course is over to have a handy and accurate reference on the shelf at work."
--Nancy Schneider, University of Maine - Augusta

"I have found this book to be an excellent resource for finding answers to a variety of technical writing questions both simply and quickly. The wide range of topics covered also makes the handbook useful as a general reference across many disciplines."
--Cynthia Raisor, Texas A&M University

"This handbook has kept up with the increasing focus on technology and electronic research and with the typical components of a variety of professional documents. Once students discover this book's usefulness, they consult it in conjunction with every writing assignment, saving me time and encouraging them to participate more fully in their own learning."
--Karen Welch, University of Wisconsin - Eau Claire

"I choose the Handbook of Technical Writing because I want students to have a single, reliable, versatile and broad-ranging text that will serve them well in a variety of circumstances."
--Ralph Batie, Oregon Institute of Technology

"The Handbook of Technical Writing is written clearly and the information in it is accessible. It's a valuable companion in any technical writing classroom."
--Natalie D. Segal, University of Hartford
