Every engineer or scientist has grappled with this problem of how to present technical information, whether in a report, a paper, an instruction manual, a design brief, project tender, or in a product presentation. Clifford Matthews gives practical help by showing the wide variety of different methods of presentation and guiding the reader into making the right choices.
