Writing with Precision: How to Write So That You Cannot Possibly Be Misunderstood Cover


Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Jefferson Bates states "I believe that writers have responsibilities to their readers. The first of these responsibilities is never to waste the readers' most valuable commodity — time. The second, closely related and just as important, is to strive diligently to write clearly, concisely and Precisely.

This handbook is the product of a working writer who has devoted most of his professional life to one cause: writing with clarity and precision. The approach is practical and systematic with a wealth of vivid examples from the author's almost 40 years in both government and industry.

The book practices what it preaches. Presented with astuteness and simplicity, the same techniques and short-cuts are offered that professional writers use. From the beginning you'll be able to note definite improvements in your ability to express thoughts clearly, effectively and precisely which, after all, is the name of the game.

Now as an updated edition, after six printings, Writing With Precision is available to meet the needs of this ever changing world. Specified as "required reading" by many U.S. and state governmental agencies and by several corporations, this book is a must in allowing one to express themselves with the clarity, conciseness and precision that is essential in today's fast paced environment.


Includes bibliographical references (p. 273-280) and index.
