Writing Words that really work 5 Dec. 2004
By LATH - Published on
Format: Paperback
This is an exceptional book. It is a quick read with outstanding points for writing in different aspects of business. The author, Susan Benjamin, gives you six steps to use when writing anything. I especially appreciated the section on how to make a quick list of the points you want to cover in your writing before you start writing then using this list to write fast, saving the editing and proofreading for later. Moreover, Ms. Benjamin states that you should find an editor, a good editor, to review your documentation. I suggest that if you want a good book on business writing, this is the one. Buy this book. You will not regret it.
The Word Hunter 19 May 2001
By A Customer - Published on
Format: Paperback
Bad habits and working conditions get in the way of WORDS AT WORK. Writing is easier if you look at it as a process: listing what needs to be covered and when; writing and rewriting for an attention getting opening, a smooth main part, and a memorable ending; editing; getting feedback; and proofreading. Author Susan Benjamin also says to build a portfolio of regularly written documents, find mentors, make reading and writing comfortable habits, pay attention to budgets and deadlines, take classes, use common sense, and write what the boss wants. With her emphasis on appropriately personal or professional tone, lively word use and solid structure, her book works well with Cosmo Ferrara's WRITING ON THE JOB, Marcia Layton's THE COMPLETE IDIOT'S GUIDE TO TERRIFIC BUSINESS WRITING, and Jeffrey McQuain's POWER LANGUAGE.
Very Good Resource 13 April 2009
By Anthony M. Davis - Published on
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
Susan Benjamin put together a great resource. I've read this book numerous times so far, each time learning something new (or being reminded of something I forgot.) Her book helped me to put together an important list as I began writing my book. I recommend this to anyone who wants to write.
