Overall, a good read. Brought some attention to points in writing I hadn't considered, and detailed various email-writing tips. Some points seemed common sense, but the book was well-written and easy to follow. Quick read with the layout of mini-chapters. Probably wouldn't have read it had it not been assigned to me.

Essential if your main job is to communicate at work. From simple emails to lengthy proposals these rules don't suck, make sense, and have had a huge impact on my daily work life. Relevant for today's short attention spans and multiple media formats.

My only complaint is the quality of the binding and design of the book. If only those things had matched the content. Ironic.

Very well written and organized.

I learned many things from this to improve my business writing. It was comprehensive, including websites, blogs, and international considerations as well as the normal memos, reports, white papers, email, etc.

I will definitely be keeping this available for reference.

When it comes to business writing, can one do better than provide a list of friendly advices, which are easy to read and understand. Two professional journalists combine their efforts to share their experience in business writing.
