Can anyone recommend a good technical / business writing book?

I took a technical writing for engineers class in undergrad, and kept the book
, which I find myself referring to when writing resumes, job applications and proposals. But sometimes I wonder how relevant it remains in an era where most writing happens in email. I also wonder if the resume writing and cover letter advice is well received by people making hiring decisions.
For those who prepare written documents regularly on the job: is there a better book people working in the field recommend for preparing and formatting reports, proposals, and other written communication?
Hiring managers: are there books with advice you like on the subject of resumes and cover letters?
