I picked this book up in the library. I think the ideas are good, but the book is a bit outdated. ie, references saving documents to floppy disks. Many basics are covered, before starting to write, have an outline of where you're headed, correct punctution and spelling is a must, use simple words that most understand unless a less common word better expresses your thoughts, etc. Also covers many of the most commonly mistaken words, ie. effect/affect. Should all have been covered in a good writing 101 class. Emphasizes shortening your choice of words, ie use the word 'now' instead of 'at this point in time' Also covers all the business basics, writing a business letter, a speech, fund raising letters, etc. Good reference book, would look for an updated version of same book. May be available, have not looked into myself.

This book delivers on its title - it is a concise, well written and easy-to-read guide on creating business documents that grab a reader's attention and effectively sell an idea or product. It is an important read for anyone who writes for business purposes, and serves as a useful day-to-day reference. The chapter on e-mail is particularly important, explaining how to create e-mails that stand out in an environment where many people receive dozens of e-mails daily. In addition, this chapter addresses the importance of proper e-mail grammar and etiquette, which are often overlooked, but are no less important than in other business letters. Whether you have a liberal arts background or an MBA, this book can make you a better business writer.

This was a terrific book which I would recommend to all of my clients, colleagues and friends -- but not to my competitors. It gives too many good ideas on how to get your message across effectively, succinctly and clearly. The style is particularly effective -- bullet points with examples and real world examples of how to write more effectively. As a securities analyst following technology companies, I am in a very writing-intensive business, where I need to get my point across as effectively as possible in as few words as possible. At another level, I am alarmed by the caliber of writing that I see from people who we recruit -- people from major universities and graduate schools -- who are unable to write effectively. This book will be a useful tool for them -- better late than never.
