    You will use this book again and again and again

    Want to know just the right way to apologize to someone you've had a tiff with? Want to write a letter of sympathy to a friend's mother but don't know exactly what to say? Want to thank a business associate for sending work your way? WHEN WORDS MATTER MOST helps you with these kinds of letters, and many, many more. This book covers with grace every instance where you might want to write a note, from letters of apology and sympathy, to letters of encouragement, love, congratulations, and of course, thanks. I keep this book on my desk right next to my dictionary. I can't tell you how many times I have referred to Robyn Spizman's suggestions for guidance and inspiration. HIGHLY recommended.

    An indispensable guide to all kinds of letter writing.

    I was raised to appreciate the art of the letter. I've always sent thank-you notes for gifts, birthday cards to friends and family, holiday cards, get-well cards, etc. But as an adult, I've discovered that there is a true art to writing a thoughtful letter, and I've spent hours mulling over the right words to convey a messag. Then I bought WHEN WORDS MATTER MOST. This very special book offers thoughtful suggestions for every occasion, from birthdays, engagements, congratulations, births, holidays and retirements to words of sympathy, illness, apology, and farewell. And the book gives appropriate suggestions for different kinds of relationships, including family, business associates, neighbors, etc. Creative, thoughtful, and extremely inspirational, WHEN WORDS MATTER MOST is an essential book to own.
