What Reviewers Are Saying
In case you ever get invited to a garden party by the Queen, or need to write to your MP, or to announce a birth or death, this guide will steady your hand. There are examples to copy or paraphrase which cover every type of social or business correspondence, whether inviting or responding, including the proper forms for all levels of formality. In these days of e-mails and faxes, advice in communicating clearly is important, whatever the media. Such is the plethora of information around that a personal letter, electronic or handwritten, is increasingly rare and perhaps has more impact. This guide is perhaps rather over ambitious in suggesting it can develop a personal style of writing such notes as love letters, but a clarity of attitude gained through proper business correspondence could help you get to the point. You'll need this book sometime. (Kirkus UK)
