About the Author:

Claire B. May is Academic Director of General Education at The Art Institute of Atlanta. Gordon S. May is an Associate Professor of Accounting at the J. M. Tull School of Accounting at the University of Georgia.

Both authors have worked for many years with professional accounting organizations and accounting students. They have observed that accounting professionals need good writing skills to succeed, but accounting students may not receive the instruction and practice they need to become good writers. They wrote Effective Writing: A Handbook for Accountants to help accounting students and practicing accountants sharpen their writing skills.
