Qusserel
Although this might be a good book to introduce issues in technical writing to someone considering the field, it is not useful if you want anything more than a broad overview. The information it contains varies widely in depth and is sometimes dated; for example, there are several paragraphs discussing the features of dot-matrix printers but only one short and incomplete list of the types of bindings available for professionally printed documentation. For some unclear reason, two sections on editing are separated by 10 pages on usability testing. If you are actually involved in technical writing, there are better books.

Most of the times, technical documentation is the poor sister at the time of creating a new product. We all have experience the frustration of reading through the manual of software or a technical product and not being able to understand what the writer is talking about. We have been frustrated because we cannot follow what is suppossed to happen and it seems as we need to read into the writer's minds.
Haramundanis book comes to the rescue, providing companies with a series of step to follow in order the create the technical documentation that should accompany any product. Following these steps, will ensure the clearest quality of these documents. I wish that some developers had read this book before marketing their products !
