"Johnson-Eilola and Selber do a superb job at canvassing both historic and current foundational works in a wide variety of specialty areas that, over time and collectively, have defined and shaped our field. Their coherent, single-volume collection of the most influential articles in the field is destined to become an invaluable resource for advanced technical communication students, newcomers to the field, veterans in the field, and practitioners."--Rachel Spilka, University of Wisconsin at Milwaukee
"Central Works in Technical Communication
is exactly the right name for this collection. Johnson-Eilola and Selber have gathered a broad, even-handed sampling of some of the best works in our field: those dog-eared articles that are scattered throughout our journals and books and filing cabinets, the ones we pull out when we want to touch base with our field--and introduce it to others."--Clay Spinuzzi, University of Texas at Austin
"I could see actually restructuring my course to reflect the topics used to organize this book."--Jimmie Killingsworth, Texas A&M University
