Description
This is a large format guide to clear and effective writing in the workplace. It's made especially useful by dedicating nearly half the text to a comprehensive and accessible review of grammar and sentence structure. Many exercises and examples make the dreaded grammar part not so dreadful at all. These first eight chapters go a long way toward building writing competence for any purpose or audience. The next half of the book addresses business demands: correspondence of all types, business reports and proposals, news releases, and so on. The meat of the book is supplemented by helpful sections on spelling problems, commonly confused words and a glossary of business terms. Annotation ©2010 Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (booknews.com)
