Books for technical writers and editors

This section of the site lists a library of books I recommend for technical writers, editors, consultants and instructors.

In the lists, each book is linked to Amazon Books in the USA and the UK (except when the book is not listed at one or the other). You can read their reviews and order the book if you wish. Some books have a separate “Review” link to my own comments on the book. As I find useful new books, I will add them to this list.
