Bryan A. Garner: HBR Guide to Better Business Writing
A brief, compelling guide to improve business communication. From business letters, reports, to emails, Garner helps make your case clear, concise, and engaging through the process of the MACJ:
- The Madman gathers material and generates ideas.
- The Architect organizes information by drawing up an outline, however simple.
- The Carpenter puts your thoughts into words, laying out sentences and paragraphs by following the Architect’s plan.
- The Judge is your quality-control character, polish the expression throughout—everything from tightening language to correcting grammar and punctuation.
This little book, recommended to me by a business-grammar instructor, has just what I need to communicate in my day-to-day job.
