I'd highly recommend Nicely Said. It's excellent for people new to writing for the web, but there's plenty in there for experienced writers too.

The book's full of practical examples and exercises, which makes it really useful. The general guidelines on writing simply and clearly are great. I also really liked the sections on working out the voice you want to write with, and on choosing an appropriate tone.

It's also, unsurprisingly, very well written: straightforward, clear, and friendly.

HASH(0x93cbd4e0) out of 5 stars Beautifully written and incredibly helpful 26 Jun. 2014
By David - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
I'm a designer who has always wished to be a better writer. I've read tons of blog posts, half-read academic-writerly books that made me feel like I wasn't paying enough attention in college, and purchased in earnest how-to's that serve mostly as dust curation tools for my shelf. Nothing has ever really stuck.

This is the first book on writing I've read that is practical, approachable, and project oriented. I was able to understand processes that make going about writing less intimidating and more clear. I think most importantly it's given me structured ways to approach what I write and think about what I'm communicating. Nicole and Kate have written a great book that is immensely helpful and fun to read. Thank you!

HASH(0x93cbd6f0) out of 5 stars There needs to be more books like this. 22 Sept. 2014
By Joe - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
This book is beautiful, clear and refreshing. One of the things I really appreciate is the small illustrations throughout the book that allow the mind to rest while absorbing their concepts. I appreciate the background of both of the authors and how one works freelance and so has exposure to lots of businesses, while the other works for MailChimp and understands working inside of a larger innovative company.

The web moves so fast that it's hard to keep up with the latest designs and best practices. From what I've seen, the majority of the most current best practices are in blog posts, and some are in books from A List Apart and Smashing Magazine - but there's not enough out there. I couldn't find any design books on flat web design updated for 2014, but scores of blog posts. What makes this book stand out is that it's current, written by professionals, concise and easy to grasp the concepts, and just beautiful through and through. I hope the authors continue to write and can inspire designers in their field to create books like this.

What differentiates this book from dozens of others just like it? Applicability. I've recommended this book (aggressive hyper-linking) to everyone I know who has writerly aspirations.
