Give them copies of:

Mastering Technical Writing by Joseph C. Mancuso (Addison-Wesley, 1990, ISBN
0-201-52350-7)

BUGS in Writing by Lyn Dupre (Addison-Wesley, 1995, ISBN 0-201-60019-6)

These books are aimed at engineers who want/need to write.

My review of the Dupre book is on my web page. My review of the Mancuso book
appeared about five years ago. I don't have reviews that old on my web page
yet, but you can find it if your library carries IEEE Micro. ...RM
