This book has many good examples. Many of the examples and some of the points in the book is presented in a witty, funny way. I know some of you will roll your eyes after reading my next statement, but it makes it more fun to learn Business Writing. I use this book and Kitty Locker's Business and Administration Communication for my Business writing reference.
Skimmed. This is just a very basic 'how to write' book for those who really feel they can't communicate well in writing. There is some insight on tone and writing to deadlines, and the difference between good ideas and good writing and the importance of both, but also a lot of filler.
I'm using this as the textbook for a writing class I'm teaching - I like the style of this. It's very easy to read and has a lot of stuff people can use as reference.

“Victor Hugo, author of Les Misérables, forced himself to write by disrobing and giving his clothing to his valet with strict instructions that it not be returned until he had written the allotted pages.” 0 likes
