About the Author:

SANDY PFEIFFER has spent a career in technical and professional writing. With a Ph.D. in English, he is a professor and department head at Southern Polytechnic State University in Marietta, Georgia. His department offers both B.S. and M.S. degrees in Technical and Professional Communication.

Besides the Pocket Guide, Pfeiffer has written Technical Writing: A Practical Approach, now in its 4th edition (Prentice Hall, 2000). The book is used in colleges and universities around the country. He also wrote Proposal Writing: The Art of Friendly Persuasion (Merrill, 1989), and co-authored, with Chuck Keller, Proposal Writing: The Act of Friendly and Winning Persuasion (Prentice Hall, 2000).

Since 1979, Pfeiffer has taught communication seminars to business, industry, and government groups in the United States and overseas. Sample seminar topics include Report Writing, Proposals, Oral Presentations, Effective Meetings, and Technical Editing.

From the Back Cover:

Pfeiffer's Pocket Guide to Technical Writing gives quick access to the essentials of on-the-job writing. It includes the following features:

  • For Speed—a 9-step process to write quickly and well
  • For Organization—a three-part structure to organize all documents
  • For Visual Appeal—tips for using white space, lists, and headings
  • For Correctness—an alphabetized handbook on style and grammar

The Pocket Guide provides brief guidelines and models for 16 different documents—from letters and memos to proposals and many types of reports. It also offers guidelines for three special topics—graphics, speeches, and email.

You may never need another book to help you with one of the mot challenging parts of your job—writing.
