A friend of mine has been moved within her company from writing end-user guides
(in the technical publications group) to writing Getting Started guides and
tutorials (in the Marketing group). I haven't had much experience here and was
hoping that some of you can recommend books, examples, websites etc., that she
could refer to. She basically needs to see the difference between end-user
guides and getting started marketing guides and also information on how to
approach tutorials. Thanks.
