This is an outstanding business writing book -- high on substance, low on fluff, with just enough sidenotes and tangents to make it entertaining. Davis covers a lot of material in this quick read. I especially appreciate his advice on writing memos/emails for maximum effect and response. He provides simple formulas for common types of communication: request for info., claims, good news, bad news. And he recommends putting down points in the order the reader can use them, not the order in which you think of them. (Should be obvious, right? No so in the business world.)

He offers bad writing examples and good revisions. Check out this example:

"Subject: Roadway identification in parking lots

During our Safety Coordinators' meeting the point was made that with our energy conservation program (during the hours of darkness, fog, etc.) roadway identification in our parking lots is hazardous. The recommendation was raised that we might use a fluorescent-type reflecting paint. Would you please investigate the feasibility of this recommendation and advise me as to your decision on implementation?
Your early response is appreciated."

Awful, right?
Here's his revision:

"Subject: Fluorescent paint in parking lots

Can we use fluorescent paint in our parking lots to make traffic lanes easier to see?
During our Safety Coordinators' meeting, someone pointed out that with our reduced lighting, roadways are hard to see in fog or darkness.

Please find out whether this solution will work, and let me know within a week.
Thanks."

It's a great book! Now that I follow his guidelines I find writing easier, faster, and a lot more fun.

I cannot say enough good things about this book. I'm a communications professional who writes reports and presentations for a living. I was looking for a book that would help me fine-tune my otherwise good writing skills.

This book was more than I hoped for. Not only did it change the way I write reports and presentations, it also changed the way I write email - getting to the point faster, cutting superflous words, writing without editing until later, and other nuggets of wisdom and practical advice.

If you look at my other book reviews, you will see I'm a harsh critic and don't give five stars easily. But my writing is vastly improved because of the lessons in this book and I highly recommend it for anyone serious about improved written communication.

This little book has a lot packed into it, which means that it's both manageable and sometimes superficial. Everything the author says has some usefulness, but in the real world of business, it's not always practical. For instance, the author uses an hour to illustrate how to divide time into smaller chunks. In my experience, most business writing needs to be done in just a few minutes. Following the author's advice, I would be hard pressed to squeeze in any significant time for preparation. It's more likely that I would bear in mind the author's advice while writing furiously in the moment. If you're the kind of person who is self-disciplined and can learn independently, this book would be a very good introduction to business writing. There are short exercises at the end of each chapter and a final exam. The author's tips on how to keep your writing intelligible are worth the modest price of the book.

If you actually want to improve your writing skills, both for content and style, use this book. Initially it appears to be yet another ho-hum compilation of know your audience and plan your message. It progresses well beyond that.

The hard work of writing is like the successful approach to a journey of 1,000 steps, as conveyed in the ancient Chinese proverb: 'Begin with just one step.' This nuts-and-bolts book encourages business professionals to take the management skills they already have and apply them to the process of writing. At times the book is a bit repetitive, but in the final analysis, it's a practical tome for improving your writing in 12 straightforward lessons. It even comes with a self-driven online exam at the end. If you want to improve your writing, get this book.
I really appreciate all the detailed advice in this book. I've returned to it over and over to improve my writing. So glad I made this purchase.
