Say What You Mean! lays down the laws for writing simple, effective, and unambiguous sentences, the kind that deliver the facts, influence opinion, and make things work throughout the English-speaking world - and that you and every other American grown-up must know how to write if you want to be understood by others.Since it was published in England in 2001, Say What You Mean! has become a must-read among journalists, writers, educators, and language-mavens - everyone who needs to know the difference between lesser and fewer, disinterested and uninterested, and hire, rent, and charter.
