Editorial Reviews

Library Journal - Library Journal
Computers will not make us better writers; however, with the appropriate use of computer tools, organizing, entering, editing, formatting, proofreading, and publishing may become simplified. The first of the 15 chapters introduces 12 types of software and covers basic terms. The rest of the book is on writing. It offers 12 steps to better writing and outlines essential language skills for business and technical writers. Texts and trade books on writing are plentiful, and this one does nothing to rise above the average. It fails to provide depth on the unique characteristics of writing with computers. The book, with its distracting informal tone and wordiness, is an example of poor business writing itself. A major handbook or writing text might be preferable. Not recommended.-- Annie Davis, Technology Training Assocs., Cambridge, Mass.
