    Excellent refresher & reference. Dumaine practices what she preaches. Aug. 23 2012
    By Joe Rama - Published on Amazon.com
    Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
    This book packs it in. Each section is short, to the point, and a bunch of them include useful questionnaires, checklists, or tables to recap the short chapter. Deborah Dumaine practices what she preaches (including the visual tables, et al.) with sharpshooting points and precision.

    I believe this book is ideal for experienced and seasoned writers looking to hone and tighten their communication. (NB: an inexperienced writer may find the short and to the point nature of this book... lacking compared to a full-blown expose on writing.)

    Bottom line: "Writing for Business" is a very good reference for ambitious business writers and a marvelous little gem of a book.

    Use as one of the college business writing books. Small and good enough to carry as a travel reference.
