I think you mean:

Effective Writing: for Engineers, Managers, Scientists

ISBN #0471807087
$125 new

BTW, would help all of us if when anyone recommends a book, if
they possess the book, to include the ISBN number. Then it doesn't
matter if ya don't get the title quite right.

A good book for this is 'Writing for Engineers, Managers, Scientists' by
HJ Tichy. It was a text years ago for my tech writing class from UC
Berkeley, and they still use it. It's expensive, though. It does have
some good sections on how to interact with other people.
