   Great reference material
I keep this handy in the office. I'm more of a technical guy and daily writing is involved with something emails, performance reviews, letters to vendors, memorandums, training guides and I will soon use this book to update my resume and cover letter templates.

   Must Read for New Professionals
I am an engineer, so I struggle with writing well and effectively. This book was an immense help in helping me not only to understand what I was doing wrong, but also to write to a specific audience. As a scientist, I can personally attest that there are LOTS of people who don 't know how to write. Not only are they important, but they never take the time to learn, mainly because they don't think it is bad. Clearly communicating with your boss and your peers is an immense help in science, and I would highly recommend this book as a great intro to somebody looking to improve their writing and style.

   Read The Book & Refresh Your Skills
This book is a must-read book. It is short, succinct, and relevant even in our era of email, text messaging and social media. While the book is being dated, the principles of Keep It Simple Stupid are appropriate, short and to the point, and use simple grammar, including examples. Email and social media make it even worse. As well, great for students.

   Good book for daily email writing
This is a good book to learn and communicate effectively how to write. I purchased one for my relative and this one I keep for myself.
 
2
   Very old fashioned
I'm sure that this was a great book at the time of its publication. But now it is just very old fashioned. Many of the rules would not apply these days, especially on the web. I would have preferred a different focus on writing that works, rather than a mixture of main writing types. It doesn't cover any of these topics enough and you can find for each of them online much better guides.

   Way too wide and not deep enough.
This book would have done better to focus on a particular area or two. By attempting to cover email, presentations, resumes, proposals and a swath of other areas in 180 pages, the book eventually fails. This book covers only major areas in a rather perfunctory way.

   Excellent
Simple to write, well followed Sage advice. I am glad to have it for such a price.

   Dont but kindle version of this book!!!
If you really want to buy 100% of this book, don 't get the kindle version. It is horrible and is poorly formatted.

   This is a terrible book for you if you're a) not an idiot
This is a terrible book for you if you're not an idiot and b) have written something in the past. It's so ABC that it's ridiculous. If you have ever written something and want to improve it just look elsewhere. If you have no idea of anything, it works maybe.
