"Developing Quality Technical Information is unequaled in the field today as a comprehensive textbook on how to do technical communications right. Every technical communicator around the world can surely apply this model to their information; those that do so systematically will surely see an improvement in the quality of their deliverables." Lori Fisher, Manager, Data Management User Technology, IBM; Instructor, University of California Extension Santa Cruz "The writers have done an excellent job of keeping the editorial advice simple and clear enough for technical writers who didn't major in English or journalism. The book should make a very good technical writing and editing text in universities, but I think it will be even more valuable for experienced writers, editors, and managers concerned with raising the quality of their publishing programs." Carolyn Mulford, Freelance Writer and Editor Instructor, Georgetown University Continuing Education
