About this title:


Forget those 200-page books that claim to teach brevity! Why Your Writing Sucks is today's short-and-sweet route to better writing at work. In this concise, cheerful, informed guide, you'll find grammar-free, common-sense, actionable advice to raise your writing game.


Think you're a bad writer? This book will help you. Think you're a good writer? This book will make you better. Think you're a great writer? This book is critical. No kidding. There are too many words floating around in memos, emails, reports. Nobody wants to read long prose in a work setting, no matter how well crafted. Get to the point! Marcia will get you there – and you'll get the outcome you're looking for.

Why your Writing Sucks is aimed at adequate writers that could be good, and good writers that seek excellence. The business/engineering students I graduate often find that a contract or proposal, or even their own advancement, will depend on a piece of their writing. Ross brings a number of clear rules to those efforts.
Short, amusing and succinct – whether just coming into the business world, looking to improve, or wanting to avoid bad habits, business people will find Why your Writing Sucks an easy, useful read.
