In a fast-paced workplace, where emails fly at lightning speed, precision and brevity are essential for good communication. But all too often we let spell-checkers do the dirty work—because many of us have forgotten the simple grammar rules we learned in school.
 
In How Not to Write, Terence Denman, instructor with the U.K.-based Plain English Campaign, sets out the top 10 grammar myths and the 10 grammar rules to live and work by. Readers will learn to:
 
     ·  Position prepositions
     ·  Chop off unwanted auxiliaries
     ·  Root out passivity
     ·  Eliminate extraneous adjectives
     ·  Punctuate with impunity
 
With a breezy, wry, and accessible tone that never scols but always enlightens, How Not to Write is an indispensible guide to clear, concise, and correct language in the workplace.
