This is a very good guide for those who find it difficult to express themselves gracefully in writing. There are many examples for all kinds of occasions and requirements from announcements to credit collection, resumes to media kits. You'll always know the right thing to say in writing with this book as your guide! Read this, and the next thing you'll feel like doing is start your own collection of digital document templates for all your communication needs. I liked it a lot!
