Write To The Point

by Salvatore J. Iacone

Write to the point is an informal step-by-step guide to improving the writing skills of business and technical professionals for both traditional and modern electronic forms of written communication. The goal of this guide to better business writing is to help you to write with greater ease, precision, and clarity. A conversational instructional format will "walk" you through the actual stages of the writing process, from planning and writing the first draft to editing and proofreading. Also included are helpful guidelines to correct grammar, punctuation, and modern usage; lists of often-confused words; and models of suggested content and formats for e-mail, memos, letters, and reports.
