I've just started writing for a financial accounting software company in
The department has very few reference books or general technical writing
textbooks. I've been asked to put together a list of books we should buy
and wondered if you have any recommendations? I would particularly
welcome your opinions about which is:
* The best general (American) English language dictionary
* The most useful technical writing textbook/handbook
Perhaps anyone with suggestions could email me directly unless you've
got a point to make which everyone would benefit from.
Looking forward to hearing from you.
