The links below lead you to the API-related references we have collected.  Some of these references will be explicitly for API documentation, and some will be for API creation, as often technical writers are asked to participate in the creation of an API.


Notes  on this section

  • Beyond review comments, unless otherwise noted, inclusion of a pointer to a resource does not indicate any recommendation or biased promotion of that resource.  This is just a place to find books and other materials to help you help your client or company better create and document APIs.
  • FYI: Searching Amazon for "API" in Books returns over 3000 hits, of which only about 600 rate 4 stars or higher, and not all are relevant.   Most of these are aimed at developers.
