9780023674655: Revising Business Prose

As its title implies, this book deals with revising, not with original composition. In business writing, where a first draft often emerges quickly under the pressures of facts, figures, and deadlines, revision is typically the major part of a writing task, and collaborative revision often produces the final document. Revising Business Prose provides detailed revision guidance and a collaborative approach to writing easily applied to writing in business, industry, government, and academics. Based on the premise that bad writing in organizations imitates the bureaucratic style — “The Official Style,” as it's called here — this book shows students how to transform stilted, dense prose into plain English. An accompanying 40-minute Revising Business Prose Video, as well as a Set of Interactive Revision Exercises, are available from Rhetorica, Inc. for an additional fee.
