Great for all who want to learn how to write conciselyand clearly, 10 Nov. 2009
I have to write a large number of reports in my job as an auditor and the difficulty is always balancing sufficent detail to be meaningful with conciseness and clarity. I first read this book when it was called Newsman's English and found it invaluable in helping me to deveop a clearer, concise writing style. I have re-read it in its latest form and find it just as useful as the original and an excellent refresher. In summary, it is an excellent book for all people who have to write as part of their living as it makes you think about whether every word is working for its living. It is not just for Journalists!
