Format: Paperback
Whether you are a novice at writing or just need help wording documents, this book is a wonderful guide. Samples are plenty, complete from determining who is your audience to effective guidelines and checksheets. You will learn simple editing techniques, exercises for practice. Extensive guidelines are given whether you do a resme, letter, research, short and long reports, proposal, charts, etc. Included, also is some instruction on technical writing (manuals, visuals, figures, etc.)
The book is well prepared, easy to read, formatted and designed well for easy reference. You don't have to be a "writer" to use this book. It is for anyone who may write a memo to a proposal in business. I encourage the use of this book; as it is one of the better I have used. ....MzRizz

This book is plain terrible. Most of the content is common sense... seems like they use too many words and put things into too much of lamense terms than necessary just to fill the pages. In fact you could skip many of the pages and instead read the section titles within the chapter and learn everything that is has to teach you quicker... which still isnt much. Its not all all interesting in the least, and I personally did not learn a thing from it, but when a teacher assigns a book you have to waste your momey to buy it. To anyone who has to buy this book, I am truely sorry.

The cover wasn't the same as the photo but besides that the book is in good condition. The book didn't have markings and I was really hoping for that

Wordy beyond belief to explain the most mundane of business communication. An entirely functional book: It has pages, printed text and everything you'd come to expect out of a book. Added bonus of happy business people on stock photos.

This book is extremely helpful. I purchased this edition since it was less expensive and provides the same information as the newer edition. The examples are very relevant and I follow their tips in my daily work. A must read for new members of the business workld.

Great price. Unfortunately this was listed under 9th edition when I searched. When I received it, it's the 8th edition. I needed at least 9th or better for school...which starts in 4 days! Crap. How can I fix this?!
