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.
Looks like Rude wrote the third and fourth editions and Eaton is
coauthor on the fifth. Academic publishers revise books unnecessarily
to try to force sales of new editions instead of used editions.
Sometimes the newer editions are worse.
