Gr 6 Up-While this title may not jump out at students or entice them to read it for pleasure, it is filled with easy-to-understand, useful information. Dragisic guides readers step-by-step through the various types of written correspondence, both personal and business. Abundant and clear, the rationales for taking the time and doing the research that is sometimes required to write effective letters should make sense to the intended audience. The chapter on the basics of grammar and the importance of spelling and word usage is very brief and not particularly helpful. However, an in-depth discussion of this topic is really beyond the scope of this book. The sections on electronic mail and sources for research that can be found at the library will be useful. A list of special titles and salutations for religious leaders, diplomats, etc., is appended, along with suggested Internet sites. The most interesting section includes a collection of letters written by such people as Benjamin Franklin, Frederick Douglass, and Winston Churchill. There is a definite need for this book in most collections.-Linda Wadleigh, Oconee County Middle School, Watkinsville, GA
