Book Preface

Whether digital, face-to-face, handwritten, or printed, workplace communication is more than a value-neutral exercise in “information transfer:” it is a complex  social transaction. From reports to proposals, job applications to email messages,  video chats to oral presentations. every rhetorical situation has its own specific inter­personal, ethical, legal. and cultural demands. Moreover, today’s professional needs to be a skilled communicator and a discriminating consumer of information, skilled in methods of inquiry, retrieval, evaluation, and interpretation essential to informed  decision making.

Designed in response to these issues, Technical Communication, Thirteenth  Edition, addresses a wide range of interests for classes in which students from a variety of majors arc enrolled. The text explains, illustrates, and applies rhetorical accountability, exercises incorporate the problem-solving demands typical in college and on the job. Self-contained chapters allow for various course plans and customized assignments.
