Amazing book July 30, 2011
It is a relevant, clear, and comprehensive guide to technical writing processes, skills and practices. It includes numerous examples and exercises in each chapter. The sender sent the textbook as expected and I received it on time. The textbook was new as was described and the price was reasonable. Overall, I am very satisfied with the product.
