About the Book
The "Free Sample" and the "Community Edition" are also the full version of the document.
This "book" is a chapter on technical writing from my textbook Applied Analog Electronics. Although targeted at engineering students writing design reports, much of the advice in the chapter applies to other authors and other technical writing genres.
There is a video series of 25 mini-lectures (totalling just over 6 hours) that covers the highlights of the chapter at https://tinyurl.com/design-reports.
