Writing in the Technical Fields

A Practical Guide

Second Edition

Thorsten Ewald

  • Real-world, industry-specific examples. Incorporates real-world examples of technical communication documents from a wide range of technical fields in each chapter.
  • Written specifically for students studying in the technical fields. Whereas other technical communication textbooks often focus on content relevant to students studying to be professional technical writers or engineers, Writing in the Technical Fields focuses directly on the most important skills for students studying in a technical field.
  • Practical rather than theoretical. Teaches students in the technical disciplines to tap into the communication skills they already possess and to follow logical, easy-to-remember principles and rules in order to become effective technical writers, without getting bogged down by communication theory.
  • Concise. Written succinctly but without sacrificing important content, Ewald closely meets the needs of one-semester college courses.
