I bought this book to brush up on my letter writing skills for work. This book is easily navigated and well written. It is short and to the point and you won't get lost in all the nonsense of an English book.

I bought this book and have not put it down! It helped me write the perfect querry letter, a letter to complain to the phone company about a bill and a sales pitch for my friend's jewelry store to drum up business. I refer to it at least 2 times a week. BUY IT!!
