In today's complex workplace, no one wants to read what you write. The Essentials of Technical Communication, Fourth Edition, was developed with this principle in mind. The respected author team continues to provide students with accessible and comprehensive instructions for planning, drafting, and revising technical documents that are clear and concise. New to this edition: an updated contemporary design; increased coverage of digital platforms and social media; updated instruction on information security; new coverage of accessibility and usability testing; new examples and case studies throughout.
