Editorial Reviews

From the Back Cover

Every day at work, you write. Are you writing to stand out, or writing to fit in?

Writing Without Bullshit is the first comprehensive guide to writing for today’s world: a noisy environment where everyone reads on a screen. The average news story now gets only thirty-six seconds of attention. Unless you change how you write, your emails, reports, and web copy don’t stand a chance.

In this practical and witty little book, you’ll learn to front-load your writing with pithy titles, subject lines, and opening sentences. You’ll acquire the courage and skill to purge weak and meaningless jargon, wimpy passive voice, and cowardly weasel words. And you’ll get used to writing directly to the reader to make every word count.

At the center of it all is the Iron Imperative: treat the reader’s time as more valuable than your own. Embrace that, and your customers, your boss, and your colleagues will recognize the power and boldness of your thinking.

Transcend the fear that makes your writing weak. Plan and execute writing projects with confidence. Manage edits and reviews flawlessly. And master every modern format, from emails and social media posts to reports and press releases.

Writing Without Bullshit is The Elements of Style for the Internet era; an essential tonic for the career of every serious businessperson.
