Has anyone read any of the following books? If so, could you give me a
paragraph or two about them, with your opinion?

Has anyone seen any reviews of any of these books online? Where?

Finally, is the author of any of these books reading TECHWR-L now? If so,
would you please do the impossible and summarize your book in two paragraphs?

Some of the following books were recommended by a colleague who teaches
technical writing at a university and others were ones I found on the web,
sans review:
