This market-leading text has been thoroughly revised to reflect recent changes in technology, workplace practices, and the global marketplace. As before, the book progresses from concepts to basic copyediting to comprehensive editing to management and production issues, but coverage now includes a new chapter on electronic editing and a new chapter on editing in global contexts. Technical Editing takes a comprehensive approach to editing, defining editorial responsibility in terms of information design and the overall effectiveness of a document, not only the correctness achieved through sentence-level editing. The book teaches students to think about the effects of their choices of words, sentences, organization, and design, and gives them principles and processes for this thinking. They learn that the measure of a "good" document is in part outside the document, in the match of that document to the users' needs and the author's goals.

This is an excellent textbook and was very helpful during my technical editing class. The chapters contain useful exercises at the end and the authors use real-world examples to explain concepts. Chapter length is also very manageable.

However, I STRONGLY recommend against renting it from Amazon. I received a heavily-abused and marked up version of the text (to the point that I could hardly read some of it). When I returned it to Amazon, I was told that the book was damaged and that I would have to pay to replace it. So Amazon will try to use you to replace their worn out textbooks if you choose to rent from them.

I used this book in a recent technical editing course. I initially rented the book through Amazon, but the copy I received was falling apart, and had notes taken in ballpoint throughout; it was totally unusable, so I purchased a new copy, also from Amazon. I'm glad I did, because this is a book that I want to keep. I've worked in public affairs and media for most of the last 25 years. Although I don't work as an editor, I feel it is likely that I'll refer back to this book regularly.

I love this book!!! It's everything real and informative about a career in editing and what to expect in this career field work. The book is expensive and so I'm renting a used copy, but I intend on buying a new soft copy when I can afford it. This is the book that is used in college English class that I'm taking.

The book is smaller than I expected and there is an additonal fee to access the writing lab. Other publishers include a free access code with new textbooks. For such an expensive paperback, Pearson should do the same for this book.

My professor said the newer edition didn't have significant updates. If you are an experienced writer, some of the content seems obvious but it's a good resource to have on the shelf for editing and writing. It is well organized and labeled - very user friendly.
In preparation for a carer as a Technical Editor, this book is a wake-up call, and an excellent resource for guidance while editing. The chapters are clear and concise reads (what college student doesn't love that??). My Professional and Technical Editing professor, Dr. Angela Eaton, co-authored this book. I'm not biased though, this text is truly helpful and enlightening for individuals wishing to sharpen their skills as an Editor.
