"Will be enormously helpful to many different kinds of students.

Steiner, Director, Expository Writing Program, Harvard University Extension School

Reading it lifts a veil from your eyes as it makes easily understandable those 'hidden' rules we've all occasionally followed, but have rarely if ever verbalized....A time-saver for anybody who writes under pressure."--Luis Hurtado-Sanchez, Integrated Office Systems Manager, Hewlett-Packard Company
"Kaye has done a great service to those of us...who must produce clear, persuasive, and action oriented writing as an essential part of our jobs....A useful and entertaining book."--Thomas J. Kelly, Vice President, IRM, Grumman Corporation
