There is some good information in here but some of it was dated

There is some good information in here but some of it was dated, even when they did the revision in 2010. There is just no need to talk about compressing documents for email or backing up to a floppy disk. Some of the examples of what not to do are much longer than they need to be. Otherwise, it is a quick easy ready with some good advice.

Some great new inights and necessary reminders of lesson learned but forgotten over time. A valuable book, one that I hope to re-read for years to come because of it’s simple presentation and quality content.

Great, easy to read, sometimes entertaining book with lots of examples and very useful for someone that uses English as a second language.

This book really sets the reader straight over what to do and what not to do. The authors don’t believe in being verbose or indirect.

Clear and easy to read

It is easy to read and the content helps a lot. The author uses many examples to demonstrate what and why to follow his rules to write better.

Really handy.

I would recommend this book basically to everyone. Since e-mail is regarded as “informal” it really makes a difference when someone actually takes the time to check spelling, grammar, and overall tone, and this book is full of useful tips to do just that. It’s not very long so it’s easy to read it periodically.

A solid choice for writing tips but "The guide to managerial communication" is better

In reading many books for my communications class, this book is a solid choice but there really wasn’t any huge “a-ha” moments. It full of good tips but if you had to only read one book on business writing, I would pick Munter’s Guide to managerial communication.
