Synopses & ReviewsPlease note that used books may not include additional media (study guides, CDs, DVDs, solutions manuals, etc.) as described in the publisher comments.
Book News Annotation:
A-to-Z entries answer the kinds of logistical questions that come up during legal writing—from the proper uses of commas to identifying the writing priorities for complaints. Entries also address general issues of style, such as the overuse of flowery language and jargon. And the reference even provides advice on handling emotionally sticky topics in entries such as "bad news, giving it" and "bad news, softening it." The authors are teachers of law and writing at the U. of Wisconsin and Georgetown U.
