Short, easy read. Some good advice. Intended audience: teens and twenty-somethings
on April 20, 2014
Murray's efforts to share business and life insights with his intended audience of young men and women seem sincere. The book is going to be most useful for teens and twenty-somethings, but even older readers will find some wisdom in Murray's suggestions, if only to reinforce that which they already know. I read the book in two or three sittings, overall less than 24 hours. I wish Murray would have fleshed out his section, "On Thinking and Writing Well." I'm always interested in reinforcing good practice for my grammar and usage. Some of the explanations, or clues for usage, didn't seem to really provide sufficient substance for someone who might be questioning his or her choice of usage. Murray does however give suggestions for supplemental reference sources one should have available when one writes.
