'Markel is the best all-round technical writing textbook I have used. It combines a process approach to writing tasks with careful attention to the writing context and rhetoric. It is readable with engaging visuals and exercises. My students give Markel high ratings for accessibility and clarity. And the text does a good job of modeling what it teaches.' - Nancy C.
