Today’s workplace requires writing emails, memos, letters, and informal reports, as well as more complex communications such as formal reports, proposals, web pages, and presentations. Revel Technical Communication, 15th Edition guides students to write persuasively, effectively, and with perspective on technological innovations and global communications.
Lannon and Gurak incorporate the interpersonal, logical, ethical, and cultural demands of different forms of workplace communications, and encourage the development of skills students will need to navigate these considerations. Building on research and writing skills, the authors prepare students for technical writing in any field. The 15th Edition incorporates the latest innovations in workplace communication and today’s technologically sophisticated, diverse, and global workforce, while retaining and expanding upon the features that have made it a best-seller in technical communication.
