Are you an aspiring technical writer? Do you want to make a difference in your workplace and your life, pursuing a career you love? If so, Heroic Technical Writing: Making a Difference in the Workplace and Your Life was written for you.

“The original audience for this book was 22-year-old me,” Leahy admits. “I didn’t know a lot about how the business world worked fresh out of college. It contains all the advice I wish I’d gotten when I was young and looking for a writing job. This is stuff they don’t teach you in the classroom.”

Addressed to students and young professionals interested in pursuing a career in technical communication, Heroic Technical Writing covers six major topics:

1. Product – the documents tech writers produce
2. Process – the business activities related to producing documents
3. People and Politics – the interpersonal opportunities and challenges that can arise in a tech writing environment
4. Professionalism – the behaviors necessary for getting along in a white-collar work environment
5. Pursuing Work – the tools and insights needed to find tech writing jobs
6. Protecting Yourself – the necessary skills no one talks about, including taking care of your physical and mental health, investing for the future, and retiring
