Write Well: 25 Easy Rules to Improve Your Business and Professional Writing, by Mark P. Painter
Judge Painter’s new book reveals how to make business writing plainer, more persuasive and effective, and easier to understand. It uses some of the same principles advocated in his legal writing books and articles—short clutter-free sentences, active voice, and plain language.
The book is concise and easy to use. As Paul Heldman, executive vice-president of Kroger, says in a quote featured on the book cover, “With an investment of only a couple hours, Write Well will greatly improve your writing.”
Jim Johnson, chief legal officer of Procter & Gamble calls Write Well, “A short course to give your writing punch.”
