...I feel that this text covers various topics in a very thorough manner. It provides a lot of up-to-date examples that are helpful in understanding the content. It would be a great resource for those wishing to mast technical communications in a Canadian context.

I like your balanced approach to the new technologies. You provide a succinct account of their importance. You neither celebrate them uncritically, nor treat them disparagingly. You provide a nice introduction to their benefits and disadvantages. I also really like how you place these technologies on a continuum: they are not divorced from the communication technologies that preceded them but can be employed using similar strategies to those used in print media...
With new additions and modifications, it feels really current to me. It describes and discusses what is actually happening with new communications technologies...
It is quite well and clearly written and it practices what it preaches...
This new text provides a strong practical approach to contemporary technical communication. It identifies significant issues in the changing landscape of the discipline and provides students with tools that will serve them in their professional lives after graduation.
- Richard McMaster, Department of Professional Communication, Ryerson University
Very comprehensive: thorough and detailed. Well-written, well laid out, with attractive pedagogical features...Clear, purposeful explanations.
- Monika Rydygier Smith, Department of English, University of Victoria
It includes the most recent advances...Lannon and Klepp’s Technical Communication is the trustworthy, reliable text we have known and valued; it covers a wide span of technical formats, [and] has been updated and is current with present technology and research practices.
