If you pick this volume up once a year, you will become a better writer.
This book begins by explaining why you should write well and, motivation being key to learning, that will greatly help you write clearly.
It's engagingly written, simple and amusing. The only reason you won't go back to it again and again is because you'll probably remember it all the first time thanks to the very good examples.
Get it. Get it now.
A little dated in parts (does anyone still write memos any more? And the references to this new fangled Internet thing are quaint) but much of the content is timeless and - sadly - now as well known as it should be.
