Another read in my weekend crash course. Some content overlap from the tech comm, but also quite usable and useful.

We have copies of this book in my office, my husband's office and our home office. I've given or recommended this book to countless people. It's the single best reference book I've ever found. I prefer the spiral-bound version, as it lies flat.
