Great book for anyone planning on working in the business world. It's up to date and very informative. Except for some question in the review of every module it is same as the 6th edition many college are using. Save yourself the money and buy this.

I bought this textbook for a course called Business Communications which is intended to pick up where College Composition 1 & 2 leave off. As a student still working to develop my writing skills I though that this book was a very good introduction to business writing. It has a lot of good information and tips for the up and coming business writer.

This is one of the few textbooks that would merit a cover to cover review. The examples give the student a very good form to follow. The only drawback is the examples written are not very realistic.

The delivery service for this book was very fast. I appreciated getting it in such a quick time frame. The book did arrive in pretty rough shape. It was a used textbook but it looked as though it had been through ALOT. It was a bit expensive for the shape that it was in. Perhaps next time you could price it more appropriately for the condition of the book.
