This is an excellent book on how to write to get your message across. It emphasizes being concise and clear while saying what you need to say.

I was given this book when I worked for International Paper Co. (the sponsor) in the 1980s, and used it to help write reports. I must say it improved my writing style.

If you are writing for the corporate world, this is your book. I also recommend it to most types of writers.

The articles are written in quick, magazine blurb style but get their point across succinctly enough. There's not a ton of content, but there are decent ideas presented at a very basic level of instruction. I liked it & I'm sure you will too. Even though this book was used also, it still was in decent condition.
