A must read for writing business documents,
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: The Pyramid Principle:Logic in Writing and Thinking (Hardcover)
This is an amazing book and i would say it should be made part of the teaching in colleges especially for people who are about to start a corporate career. There are so many books around for people who give GMAT, GRE etc on analytical writing with a lot of concepts and philosophies on good writing, but this is the best book and the best philosophy i have come across on writing business documents.
The classification of business documents, the way to structure your thoughts, the ability to put yourself in the readers' shoes and the examples - all of it is very well presented in the book.
But, the book is almost solely focussed on writing business documents with the sole purpose of how to get the message across in the most clear and logical way. Other areas of writing and even in the business world where documents need to be written with legal/contractual implications or purely technical aspects are not really touched upon, but of course these other documents are read by a specific group and not general community.
