    The title of the book describes it all. “DITA 101, Fundamentals of DITA for Authors and Managers” by A. Rockley, S. Manning and C. Cooper is an excellent introduction to DITA for authors AND managers as well as those who want or need to understand it. In this primer, you will find out what DITA is and why you should go for it (or why not!). It also covers how to work with DITA both from a management and technical communicators perspective. Unlike many other books, you will not find loads of XML tagging even though it uses practical examples to ease the understanding. In this quick read and well written 150-page book, the authors provide a basic background to DITA that allows one to explore further into the subject or simply understand what’s behind it. This book will definitively be on the top of my list for recommended reading as an entry level overview to DITA.

    Where can any tech communicator learn about DITA 1.2, intelligent content, metadata, ROI, reuse, simplified English, structured writing, translation, XML, and how they interrelate? DITA 101 Second Edition. In this senior technical editor's opinion, the best tech doc reference for 2010 is the Rockley Group's DITA 101 Second Edition. This book is a must-have document for every technical communicator. The book complements John Kohl's Global English Style Guide (another must have for everyone). Why buy the second edition? * Because there are two new chapters--"DITA 1.2" and "Calculating ROI." If you have the first edition you already know about the ROI calculator, if you don't know about it you should download it now from the Rockley site (bottom right of page): http://www.rockley.com/ * DITA 1.2 is demystified in 7 pages compared to having to wade through the 1200 page spec looking for differences. * How to calculate ROI for your DITA projects is finally made clear....
