As Bette learned her (sometimes) painful lessons, she shared them in her column, "Business Matters," in Intercom, the magazine of the Society for Technical Communication (STC), from 2003 to 2012. Business Matters republishes those articles, substantially revised and arranged thematically, along with several new chapters.
