Review:

"This is the real-deal writing guide for serious business majors." --Astrid Sheil

"An easy-to-read, informative guide with practical, real-world examples supported by evidence. It reads like the author is your personal tutor elevating you on the path to success." --Alyssa Wertz

"An excellent introductory text with advice useful to the most seasoned professional; it covers virtually all the bases of professional writing in today's workplaces. It is much more than simply what its title implies--a business writing handbook." --M. Elizabeth Weiser

"A comprehensive book that is a comfortable read." --Mary Lynn Engel

"The book provides a solid foundation for technical writers who are just entering the field. At every level it shows audience-centered communication as paramount to success in the business world."--Geoffrey Luurs

"Business Writing Today is an excellent practical resource for anyone hoping to succeed business writing 2.0." --Michelle Davidson

"It's full of practical advice that places emphasis on audience, purpose, and identity. An affordable text that doesn't get caught up in the details of spacing and appearance, but instead focuses on what makes good writing good." --Steven Engel

"The book is concisely written, well-organized, and has plenty of up-to-date examples." --Rod Carveth

"This is a good introduction to business communication that allows students to easily understand concepts. The writing is conversational. Examples for what not to do are followed up with how to revise those examples. This text does not merely tell you how to write. It shows you how you might write the draft or how you write now, and then provides you with a good example of how to revise or write differently next time." --Renee Nelms King
