The book is very through with the topics it contains and provides a solid basis and reference for much of the technical writing done today. It's also very up-to-date with input on online resume postings, web design, and citing online resources. A feature I liked is that many of the paragraphs within the chapters have small summaries in the footnotes that make chapters even easier to browse. Couldn't find anything wrong with the book except for the fact that a lot of it is being covered in my class :( I know I'll benefit though.. . Great Book.
