Praise for the previous edition:
"…will benefit anyone entering a technical communications career."—Donna Lee Dowdney, CBE (Council of Biology Editors) Views

"…a real career guide for those who plan to do more than dabble in the art of technical writing."—The Midwest Book Review

This expanded revision of The Tech Writing Game (Facts On File, 1992) offers a comprehensive introduction to the craft and business of technical writing—from how and where to train to landing and holding a job, from perfecting one's skills to mastering the tools of the trade. Each chapter has been revised to reflect changes in the new procedures and computer developments, updated details about the job market, standard pay rates and other information.

New material includes:
  • Two all-new chapters on writing for interactive media and the Web
  • Detailed advice on researching, writing, and editing for different audiences
  • A glossary of online documentation terms
  • Practical tips on finding a job and building a career in tech writing
  • A bibliography and revised appendixes listing academic programs, professional associations, and further reading.
