Technical Communication Today, Brief Editionoffers students all of the topics and genres they need for their technical communication course–in fewer pages and at a significantly lower price.

Students want their textbooks to cost less, and they want comprehensive topical coverage presented in a succinct and clear writing style.  Technical Communication Today, Brief Edition offers both and speaks to today's students.  Instructional narrative is “chunked,” so that portions of text are combined with graphics. The chunked presentation also integrates an awareness of how documents are read–often “raided” by readers seeking the information they need, and it models the way today’s technical documents should be designed. 

The contemporary writing style is matched by an approach that accurately reflects the modern day computer-centered technical workplace: Technical Communication Today, Brief Edition presents computers as thinking tools that powerfully influence how we develop, produce, design, and deliver technical documents and presentations.
