Technical Communication provides university students an easy-to-follow manual for creating professional documents suitable for the academe and for the workplace. Mike Markel's penchant for integrating the latest trends in technology is evident in this book, where he encourages the use of modern media and even dedicates a chapter on how to design documents and websites that appeal to certain target audiences. This comprehensive reference presents realistic and modern approaches to technical writing and aims to teach college level learners how to research and create information that is more akin to their audience's liking and level of understanding. Mike Markel opens the book with a comprehensive overview of what technical communication is and its characteristics. He also integrates examples, exercises, and cases and discusses current ethical and legal considerations, as well as collaborative writing trends. Technical Communication (ISBN 9780312692162) encourages students to develop an open mind so they can analyze their audience convey technical information as clearly and effectively as possible; it gives them the skills they need to research, organize, and communicate information persuasively and coherently. The author uses a friendly tone and dispenses practical advice that even professionals will find insightful. The book features an entire section on creating graphics and the process of writing emails, memos, and letters. The very useful appendix contains quick references on subjects like summarizing, quoting, paraphrasing, grammar, and punctuation. Easily one of the most comprehensive writing manuals for college students to date, Technical Communication is a handy guidebook for researchers and thesis writers.
