About the Author:

Rebecca Burnett is the former chair and currently a member of the NCTE Committee on Technical and Scientific Writing, former editor and currently a member of the Editorial Advisory Board of the Journal of Business and Technical Communication, and is the director of the advance writing program at Iowa State University.

Review:

"I like that her book is comprehensive in nature. It is practically minded but its strength emerges from Burnett's understanding and integration of the rhetorical construction of messages throughout the chapters' content, Ethics Sidebars, Intertexts, Practica, and assignments. The book is written such that undergraduate and lower-level graduate students could benefit from it."

"The thing I like best about the book is the strong, consistent rhetorical focus combined with its fantastic organization, easy readability. And my students like it..."

"Overall, Burnett's book combines more than sufficient coverage of important tech comm issues and skills in a way that is both sophisticated and approachable (and that even looks inviting on the page). It is a very usable book, not just a lot of information to read, and its scope goes beyond just the basic tech writing service course. It is also a professional text (not a gussied-up "composition" textbook with "technical" examples)."

"What distinguishes this book is the strong rhetorical focus, numerous helpful figures with annotations, and a strong organization and layout. The book is very usable. I did some tests with the index to see if I could find the things I normally cover in the service course, and I had no problem at all. I also think that the book is very teachable. I train our graduate students who teach the service course, and many of them are in literature. So they are simultaneously learning about the field while teaching. This book discusses technical communication in a way that teaches the teachers. And that is a hard thing to pull off."
