From the Publisher:

Designed for business students who need additional reinforcement in grammar, punctuation and spelling, this best-selling text/ workbook features a unique pedagogy, user-friendly writing style, and a positive approach to grammar that counteracts the "I hate English" syndrome students often exhibit. Standard English skills essential for getting a good job, holding the job, and advancing in a career are acquired through clear, brief discussions followed by reinforcing exercises, carefully placed after each new lesson. Students learn by studying small amounts, then self- checking, thus reinforcing chapter material immediately. The authors stimulate student motivation, lessen anxiety, and maintain interest by using a light touch and a practical business orientation throughout.

From the Back Cover:

Gain confidence in your communications with interviewers, co-workers, clients, and others!
