Good writing is brief and clear.

Presents examples of good writing to serve as models and also shows what to avoid. Includes illustrations (many more than in the 1st edition) of many types of good writing, culled from diverse sources. There is new material on writing minutes, news releases, resumes, and style guides. The section on writing reports has been thoroughly revised--every phase from initial organization to final selection of style has been updated to reflect modern practice. Suitable for classroom use or self-study.
