DON'T LET YOUR WRITING HOLD YOU BACK. When youa€™re fumbling for words and pressed for time, you might be tempted to dismiss good business writing as a nicety. But ita€™s a skill you must cultivate to succeed: Youa€™ll lose time, money, and influence if your e-mails, proposals, and other important documents fail to win people over. The HBR Guide to Better Business Writing, by writing expert Bryan A. Garner, gives you the tools you need to express your ideas clearly and persuasively so clients, colleagues, stakeholders, and partners will get behind them. This book will help you: a€c Push past writera€™s block a€c Graba€”and keepa€”readersa€™ attention a€c Earn credibility with tough audiences a€c Trim the fat from your writing a€c Strike the right tone a€c Brush up on grammar, punctuation, and usageWRITE LETTERS TO SHARPEN YOUR SKILLS Your letter writing is the best barometer of your writing skills generally. ... Write thank-you letters, congratulatory letters, letters of recommendation (when asked), complaint letters, letters to the editor, personal notes (handwritten), and all sorts ... To write a good one, keep it neat, try limiting it to one page, make it warm and friendly, use you more than I, and use tasteful, mature stationery. A short, vague sentence (like a€œHe was a bad bossa€).
