Subject:Recommendations for TW Texts From:Susan Lenczyk <suelenczyk -at- WORLDNET -dot- ATT -dot- NET> Date:Tue, 15 Dec 1998 20:46:54 -0500
A friend and I (both with plenty of writing experience) are seriously
researching entering TW. Before plunging in, we want to read as much as
possible on the subject. We have researched the web and found quite a
number of books related to TW. However, as we have limited resources and
the books are expensive, we would like to know what two or three books you
recommend as the BEST basic introductions to TW.
To prevent a glut of e-mails to the entire list, please e-mail me directly

As required, I will then post a summary. I would appreciate any help you
can give us.
