TechWhirl (TECHWR-L) is a resource for technical writing and technical communications professionals of all experience levels and in all industries to share their experiences and acquire information.
For two decades, technical communicators have turned to TechWhirl to ask and answer questions about the always-changing world of technical communications, such as tools, skills, career paths, methodologies, and emerging industries. The TechWhirl Archives and magazine, created for, by and about technical writers, offer a wealth of knowledge to everyone with an interest in any aspect of technical communications.
I have read parts of "The User Manual Manual" and find it enjoyable and
I bought Barker's "Writing Software Documentation" and dipped into it a
bit but it doesn't seem quite as "user-friendly," if you'll pardon the
pun. Offhand, I can't tell you why.
I haven't seen the others, but based on the Bremer book I do have, I will
get "Untechnical Writing" whenever I see it at Computer Literacy.
