This unique anthology was created with a simple principle in mind: to offer the best advice from the best sources about the most important issues business and technical writers face every day.

Strategies for Business and Technical Writing teaches effective writing for the world of work. Reading selections from seasoned professionals in business, technical, and academic fields provide examples, models, and sound advice for writers at any level. Covering such topics as audience analysis, language use and misuse, writing and revision processes, and the influence of technology on communication in the working world, this book will appeal to both practical-minded students and professionals already working in business, technology, and industry.


A collection of essays, most previously published, by professionals in business and technical communication. Suitable as a supplement to core texts in either technical writing or general composition, or as a core text itself. Explores the process of writing, problems with language, correspondence, reports and other longer documents, and resumes and other written materials for a job search. The first three editions, between 1980 and 1989, were published by Harcourt Brace Jovanovich. Annotation c. by Book News, Inc., Portland, Or.
