Writing Technical Reports - Bruce M. CooperPenguin, 0, Paperback ..
Condition: Good. An adequate reading copy only.
From the cover: “This new Pelican offers to scientists, engineers, and ethers the main principles of writing a technical report, from first draft to final version. Bruce Cooper, who heads a department of liberal studies in a technical college, maintains that a report needs to be more than a vehicle for recording exact information. It is, in fact, an exercise in human relations, in which clarity is certainly as important as correctness. The varying outlooks of the potential readers must be considered as thoroughly as the factual contents of the report. Arguing strongly for personal involvement in the writer — to the extent, if necessary, of employing the first person singular — the author gives advice on the structure of the whole report, on grammar, on the construction of sentences, on the choice of vocabulary and the avoidance of mere jargon, and on punctuation. His chapters are effectively illustrated with quotations from published technical papers and reports.”
