How to Write and Present Technical Information provides readers with concise, easy-to-use guidelines for communicating about technology in professional environments. Communication is a vitally important function of every high-tech professional, and one that is often neglected in training. Many professionals are uncomfortable with the communication tasks they face every day in the workplace. These tasks include such diverse activities as writing reports, technical manuals, articles and papers; designing visual material; organising meetings and preparing speeches. The book shows how to save time by preparing for these activities, and how to tap into individual talents more effectively. Dr Sides' book is clear, easy-to-read and easy to put into practice. Furthermore, the advice has been tested by the author on courses he has held for General Electric, Digital Equipment Corporation and MIT, among others. This edition is fully updated to cover internet and multimedia applications, and publicity material and advertising copy.
'Excellent ! easy to read, refreshingly candid ! just plain good advice.' Technical Communication 'For the engineer, computer scientist, manager, or technical writer who needs to prepare a document quickly and effectively.' Academic Library Book Review 'How to Write and Present Technical Information is both enjoyable and thought-provoking, and the book itself is the best evidence that Sides knows his subject. I think almost all technical professionals would benefit from reading him at their leisure, and reflecting on the advice he offers.' Rachael Padman, The Observatory 'I found it to be so clearly set out that I just read through it almost like a novel without getting bored ! not only is this book excellent for personal use but it would be a first-class text to use as a basis for a course - short or long - on communication in general. if you have any interest at all in running such a course you could do a lot worse than make this your first, and possibly only, buy. Overall: highly recommended.' Robin Jakeways, Physics Education
