Living up to its title,
This review is from: Oxford Guide to Effective Writing and Speaking (Paperback)
An excellent publication looking at communication in all settings and aspects in writing and speaking. It is concise and makes use of simple diagrams where these will save words. There are useful exercises for self-testing in the various topics as they occur - together with explanations where needed. Its introductions to and explanations of the topics covered are a model of economy in words without any loss of clarity. This is a s brilliant exposition of its title.
Another excellent and 'companion' publication to thie book is the Oxford A-Z of Grammar and Punctuation by the same author.
Not only are both of these superb primers they are extremely useful as 'look-up' books for refreshing the memory subsequently.
I cannot recommend these two books too highly .
