I thought of enrolling in a short course to improve my business writing skills, then I found this book online with great reviews. I purchased it, and found it to be compact, complete and very resourceful. Its also current, and has so many tips that I found myself improving my memos, emails, documents almost immediately.

Great book, helped me a lot in my writing of email at work. It allowed me to understand why and what I was doing wrong to be effective in getting my message through.

This was a terrific book which I would recommend to all of my clients, colleagues and friends -- but not to my competitors. It gives too many good ideas on how to get your message across effectively, succinctly and clearly.
The style is particularly effective -- bullet points with examples and real world examples of how to write more effectively.
As a securities analyst following technology companies, I am in a very writing-intensive business, where I need to get my point across as effectively as possible in as few words as possible.
At another level, I am alarmed by the caliber of writing that I see from people who we recruit -- people from major universities and graduate schools -- who are unable to write effectively. This book will be a useful tool for them -- better late than never.

Writing That Works is a practical guide to effective business writing. Best of all, the writers practice what they preach: the book is packed with useful advice, yet it's a surprisingly quick read.

Format: Paperback
As each edition of this book that comes out, I purchase copies for my new staff, experienced staff, clients, and friends. Life is so much simplier when we can communicate consisely and effectively, and receive ideas from others that are clear as well. What we like about this edition of "Writing That Works" is that it is right-up-to-date with new economy communications like e-mail. By distributing the book to my entire staff, I'm ensured that we're presenting a consistent voice to our clients. Follow the writing tips in this book, and you will have people complimenting you on the clarity of your thoughts, and your professionalism.

This expanded version of an earlier edition of two seasoned advertising executive' original writing guide is something like Elements of Style, but aimed squarely at someone writing for business purposes (e.g., one of the ten chapters is "Asking for Money". There is a useful afterword describing a dozen more books to help you write better. Recommended as a good starting point for any business person wanting to write more effectively.

If Strunk and White had gone to business school, this is the book they would have written. It's an antidote to the interminable memo, the pointless presentation, and the endless e-mail.
