An invaluable guide. If your job or your business depends on delivering clear messages with impact, you need this book.--Bernd Schmitt, professor, Columbia Business School
As a writing instructor of over thirty years, I know full well the demands upon young writers. Laura Brown answers the tough questions on how to get started, how to craft tone for a target readership, how to develop succinct content, and how to master argumentation.--Roger Marheine, assistant professor, Pasadena City College
A terrifically useful resource.
A practical guide to everything you'll ever need to write--at work, at school, and in your personal life... At once a how-to, a reference book, and a pioneering guide for writing in a changing world, this is the only writing resource you'll ever need.
Brown's ideas of inspired framework and hip-pocket lists of suggestions assured me that I will be rescued from writer's block when it happens. I think you'll find this book just as life-saving for your business communication needs.
How to Write Anything is the first book I've seen that addresses the very core of writing for today's digital communications channels. The lessons in this book are for everybody.--Mary Olson, digital business design and development pioneer
