In the workplace, no one wants to read what you write—seriously. In addition, they will read as little of what you write as they possibly can. Your boss or coworkers may not have the necessary background, the time, or the inclination to wade through your e-mail, memo, or report. Written with this in mind, The Essentials of Technical Communication, Second Edition, is a handbook to help you get your message across on the job, where time equals money and poorly crafted documents can have a host of unwelcome consequences.
