Product description

From the Back Cover

‘It’s a fascinating subject – and a fascinating book. Without doubt, it’s one of the best guides on business writing available today, expertly written and with clear, understandable guidance throughout. It will supercharge your writing and fast-track your business success.’

Kate Allen, Head of UK & Ireland Marketing, BP Castrol

‘Every serious business professional should have a copy of this book; it’s an absolute godsend. One of the three business books I always have on my desk to refer to, it’s worth its weight in gold. In fact it’s worth its weight in saffron.’ 

Sheridan Thompson, CRM Director, The Walt Disney Company

‘I loved this book. So many important business decisions are still made - and swayed - by writing. So if you can harness style, structure, substance and the psychology of persuasion in your writing, you've got a powerful business advantage.’

James O'Keefe, Head of Communications Planning, Lloyds Banking Group
