Congratulations to Curt Hinrichs and Chuck Boiler! Their book, JMP Essentials: An Illustrated Step-by-Step Guide for New Users, has won an Award of Distinguished Technical Communication in this year’s International Summit Awards presented by the Society for Technical Communication. The award goes to a project that “applies the principles of technical communication in an outstanding way, particularly in the way that it anticipates and fulfills the needs of its audience.”
“We’re thrilled to be honored with the award,” said Chuck Boiler. “The message of the book and of JMP is that anyone can make data driven decisions with graphics. We hope the award will help this message reach more people, even those who never even thought of trying to do data analysis.”
Curt Hinrichs added, “We tried to design the book with the less technical user in mind, which led us to do some things a little differently. It’s very gratifying to see this recognized by STC.”
SAS Press Acquisitions Editor Stephenie Joyner shared in the excitement. “We already think the book is exceptional, but it’s especially gratifying for our colleagues to recognize its achievements as well.”
