I was going to recommend Michael Bremer's "UnTechnical Writing" book to
someone I know who is interested in becoming a tech writer. I personally
found this book really helpful, as well as an enjoyable read, but I just
checked Amazon - not a copy to be had! I did a search, and found the
"UnTechnical Press" website appears to not have been updated in ages. I
probably purchased this book from Amazon 2 years ago - I really enjoyed it
and I felt it helped me to improve my writing - did others not feel the same
and that's why it (appears to be) out of print?

To those who have read it: what did you think of this book? Do you think
it's a shame it's no longer available?

Just really curious,

Jennifer Bennett
