I’ve just discovered a book by Robert Irish and Peter Eliot Weiss that I highly recommend. In fact, I intend to use it in EE 295 next year, instead of my EE 295 Sketchbook. It’s too bad that I can’t use both, but I don’t want students to have to make both purchases. I can always use some handouts from the Sketchbook and/or recommend that students borrow a copy from a friend for the quarter.
So what’s this great book: Engineering Communication: From Principles to Practice, 2nd edition.
I have not actually read the first edition, so it may not be that different, and you can get it for a few dollars (as opposed to $25-$65 for the second edition).
If you are working on improving your writing in engineering, I cannot recommend any book more than this one. More later–when I have time to tell you more about it.
Why a cow? I haven’t yet taken a picture of the book–and this is a beautiful cow!
