Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
This is an essential guide for any writer. The advice is timeless. Written by two bosses from Ogilvy and Mather. It shows how the agency become successful. Some of the information may appear outdated, such as composing a memo, but that's an email today.

Using short words, sentences and paragraphs may seem unnatural. It does work and makes it easier to read your stuff. Try putting a piece of text together before reading this book. Run your writing through a readability score such as Flesch–Kincaid. Read the book. Rewrite your work and compare your score now.

If you pick this volume up once a year, you will become a better writer.

This book is a quick and simple guide to wringing effectively for business. I say it's a reference book because I think that's how best to use it - it's more a dip in than a story. Good, clear, helpful book. Every office should have one!

Format: Paperback
This book has the basic principles of action writig: how to say what you want in as little words as possible and how to get people to take action on what you've said. The principles apply not just in business writing but articles, essays, etc. We live in an over-communicated society, so whatever attention your reader gives to your writing should be used efficiently. For that this book is essential.
