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.
Harry, I can point you to an example (several, in fact), but you'll have to
go get it yourself. That seems fair to me.
Go to your local library.
Find a copy of the _Reader's Guide to Periodical Literature_.
In the back, you'll find synopses of recently published books.
For technical stuff:
Get a copy of the STC quarterly journal _Technical Communication_.
Look at the book reviews. Along with the more extensive reviews, you'll find
several shorter synopses. (Yes, I know there's a difference between a review
and a synopsis. You'll find both in most issues.)
You could also look at Amazon.com, Barnesandnoble.com,Fatbrain.com,etc. for
some sales-oriented synopses.
