    Enormously Helpful Book

    As a current director of human resources for a F-500 company, I can honestly say this is one of the most useful books I have bought. My only regret is that I didn't have this great little book years ago as I struggled to find the correct word or phrase. <BR/><BR/>The quality of your written communication is critical to one's overall career or the lack thereof. Furthermore, I have found through the years that your written communication can often make or break you in a court of law. In essence, we are not simply talking about making our jobs easier with this book, indeed, we could be talking about profitability or loss. <BR/><BR/>I highly recommend this book for everyone in management. <BR/><BR/>Michael L. Gooch, SPHR
