This book is simply the best in its category. It walks you gently through the fine art of writing clearly and precisely, all without making it a heavy burden. The grammar review--simple enough even for nonwriters--is clear, relevant and oh, so needed these days. It alone is worth the price of the book. But, there's so much more. Author Elizabeth Danziger covers planning and organizing your material, formatting it for clarity, and using punctuation correctly, among many other relevant materials. Go, buy and read it ... you won't regret it!

I'm not done reading, but it has a lot of good pointers to help with your communication skills! I think this is a good book for anyone to have to help them communicate (whether verbally or by writing) in general.

Has been very helpful with my business e-mail communications.

So many people have no idea as to how to communicate, especially in a business context. Liz Danziger's book is concise and tightly woven to provide the nuts and bolts of clear, direct communication.

UGH. If you are in 4th grade then this is at your reading level. Otherwise, read something -- ANYTHING -- else. Pretty basic and very excruciating if you know anything about writing.

Elizabeth Danziger's advice on using clear, clutter-free language is consistent with the classic On Writing Well by William Zinsser, but this book is more useful as manual, whereas Zinsser's book is more conceptual.

For a book on business writing, the grammar review feels too elementary at times, but the well-organized layout makes it easy to skip ahead. I found the section on frequently misused words particularly valuable: affect/effect, discreet/discrete, disinterested/uninterested, premier/premiere, etc.

When is it appropriate to use which or that? The author provides an informal "just do it" rule and a formal "grammar police" rule.

"The fundamental purpose of language is not to avoid all grammatical errors. It is to convey meaning," Danziger explains. "If bending the rules is the best way to get your meaning across, then bend them. All I ask is that you know what you are bending."
