This book discusses writing in a business environment. It does not deliver techniques for developing highly technical documents, but it does give useful technical knowledge needed for writing business documents.
If you want to improve your image at work, or any time that you write for a professional audience, there are many methods and "tricks" that have to be used. Communicating logically and coherently increases how successful you can be!
It is written in a way that provides useful knowledge without having taken a course -though I encourage learning business writing skills for anyone working in an office or factory environment. It provides information in forms that are quick and easy to reference on a project-by-project basis. I've been writing memos, business procedures and other professional documents for decades and I have found this book to be useful as a desktop resource.
I took a technical writing class a few semesters ago and this book helped me alot. I passed the class with an A-. Lots of good stuff in here. From business writing to resume building this book is probably one of the only books I can say that has information you will actually need for the real world. Author did an excellent job.
This text provides specific information about writing emails, memos, letters and reports in a professional setting. I've learned about "communication abuse" and other ethical issues. Examples are included regarding how to write and how not to write. I look forward to finishing the book; then perhaps my review will be more exciting!
It discusses such things as etiquette, ethics, email, resume writting, etc. Two or three examples are given of a particular subject, and it is discussed in the text and in comment boxes. Wording is clear and precise, does not ramble (thank God!)
