How To Get Started as a Technical Writer

For years, I was asked by dozens of people ‘how can I become a technical writer?’ and I’d try and answer, until I gave up and wrote this book.

It’s not fancy, it goes against a lot of conventional wisdom, and it doesn’t explain how to do technical writing–it explains how to start from zero and get a first technical writing job.

Update: I’m working on an updated and much-expanded second edition. Stay tuned for details.
