I bought this book for my daughter, as she is studying a degree in travel & tourism with events management. No one explained how to do a report at an academical level to any of the students. i browsed on the amazon the sample and thought it looked exactly what she needed. my daughter has constantly referred to this book and she says it has been a great help. As a parent i would recommend this book as it is very thorough but in an easy to read way and not full of useless jargon. and from my daughter who is the student...understandable and very clear,perfect for dipping into when required.

This handbook offers all that you need to know to help produce professional documents. In the competitive job and education market being able to present research accessibly and clearly is especially important. This book provides the tools with which to achieve this.

It is clearly written and covers all the necessary bases. In particular I found the new addition of a Harvard referencing section useful as it took into account the new sources of research now available and offered a concise means of citing these areas.

Foremost a reference tool, this work is well presented and above all easy to understand: key requirements in a book that you want to 'dip into'for advice.

I would recommend this book for anyone looking to polish their document creation or any student looking to undertake university courses.

I found the book intellengently written, and really easy to use. The author obviously has an excellent grasp of the finer points of report writting and provides the reader with invaluable guidance and advice. An essential for any academic or professional work.

Knowing that success at university or in the world of work rests so heavily on effective written communication can be intimidating. How many of us, after all, specialise in report writing? Fortunately John Bowden does!

If you need to produce academic or business reports that present information concisely, convincingly and in an appropriately structured format, then this is the book for you. I cannot recommend it too highly. Invest in a copy!

I teach report writing and recommend this to people on my courses. Could do with demonstrating and promoting a bit more of the active writing and plain English he advocates but otherwise a very useful book.

Good advice but a little dated.
