4.0 out of 5 stars Well written guide Feb. 2 2012
By Just Peachy - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
This is a short guide to business writing. The book is easy to follow and has some great tips. The first part of the book cover different topics in alphabetical order. Good examples are given when necessary. The second half of the book is a list of words word substitues. Personally I didn't find the second half very helpful.

Readers in the United States need to realize this was written in the UK and has a few spelling rules that we do not use.

4.0 out of 5 stars Solid Tips for Business Writing April 22 2012
By David M - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Kindle Edition
Business writing is often terrible. It limps along with its mix of jargon, clichés and passive voice.

This book solves all that. Written in a no-nonsense, easy to read style, it addresses all the common problems of business writing and provides practical solutions to make your writing sparkle.

That said, the advice is simple. If you've read The Elements of Style you've no need for this book. To compare the two, Elements of Style is written with wit and pizazz. It's targeted at writers and academics, and has an American voice. Writing at Work has a distinctly British voice. It lacks the flare of Elements of Style, but makes up for that by being less pernickity and easier to understand.

This is a book for anyone who writes in their day-to-day job, whether it's letters, funding applications, emails or reports.

Apply Ellis Morgan's advice, and your writing will improve.

N.B. This is not a book about persuasive copywriting. It's a book about writing well. For copywriting advice, check out Andy Maslen's Write To Sell: The Ultimate Guide to Great Copywriting.

4.0 out of 5 stars quick and helpful resource March 13 2012
By Bruce A. Goettsche - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
Many books about grammar go unread because they are too long or too boring. This book is neither. It is a quick (but helpful) review of many issues related to writing and speaking. There are examples for each principle; but not too many. I write and speak for a living and found the book helpful.

5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent book Feb. 23 2013
By JHON - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Kindle Edition
I was trying to write better because my teachers used to give me very bad grades. Despite that they never taught me anything useful about it. Then I was looking for a book and so this one appears in amazon. Really this book has helped me to improve my writing as well as many other skills. So if you need some help on this, take a look of the book.
