1.0 out of 5 stars Dumbs down power of words, 7 Jun. 2013
Despite the two previous underwhelmed customers and their reviews I bought the 7th edition but was utterly disappointed. The author now lives in Singapore which may partle explain why the writing style she recommends would be more suited to an international audience whose first language is not English. She deliberately waters down what I feel are moderate and modest use of English into very basic set of words. The English language is a relatively new language therefore it affords its depth of meaning with a large imported vocabulary. As a UK businessman with clients in the UK I think my letters would sound very unprofessional if I was to follow the book's guidance. They would sound too much like junk mail, lack any distinct flavour and to be frank lose their integrity. I did however find the advice on the structure of each piece useful, although the same points were repeated too often. Sadly I will be returning this book
