Effective Communication for the Technical Professions is a core text aimed at the first- through third-year university and college levels. Using a theoretical and practical approach, this text is a concise guide to technical communication that helps students practise critical reading and analysis skills, technical writing, as well as develop communication skills employers value. By approaching communication as a human process that requires not only clarity of purpose, but also a strong sense of audience, the text is based on the premise that an understanding of basic rhetorical theory can enhance one's practical communication skills.
