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.
For my money, the absolute pinnacle of usable WordBasic books isn't
Microsoft's. The official stuff is pedantic, inaccurate, stiff, and bereft
of useful examples.
The peak experience in WordBasic is Woody Leonhard's "Hacker's Guide to Word
for Windows" from Addison Wesley. Awesome. Absolutely magnificent. It's like
having a wizard who doubles as class clown coaching right over your
shoulder. It's the only volume on WordBasic that's ever made that clumsy
language seem downright fun.
