About the Author :

Helen Cunningham was director of corporate communications at a financial services company in New York for more than a decade. Previously, she held communications/editorial positions at The Economist Group, a major U.S. multinational corporation and an international law firm. She also worked on a joint venture in Moscow. 

Brenda Greene is the author of five books and a former editor at Whitney Communications, Working Woman magazine and the North Jersey Herald & News. She is co-author of "The Web 2.0 Job Finder" and the author of both editions of "Get the Interview Every Time: Proven Resume and Cover Letter Strategies from Fortune 500 Hiring Professionals" and "You've Got the Interview ... Now What?" She coauthored "America's Girl: The Incredible Story of How Swimmer Gertrude Ederle Changed the Nation," which won the International Swimming Hall of Fame 2010 Buck Dawson award.

Review :

With the explosion of texts, instant messages, social media posts and blogs, they [Cunningham and Greene] say that the writing rules first outlined in their book 10 years ago are more important now than ever. They recently updated their book and re-connected with many of the Fortune 500 employers they interviewed years ago to find that no matter the profession, employees are writing more.  -- Anita Bruzzese,  USA Today, Why you should have paid attention in grammar class

Although there are many style guides, this no-nonsense guidebook focuses strictly on business writing. The email chapter should be a must-read for every business professional who feels tempted to add a smiley face or to hit reply all to every message. It is a handy and well-organized reference book for anyone who wants to write more effectively on the job, and it may be a valuable gift for someone who uses English as a second language. -- Tricia Drevets, ValueWalk.com, Before You Hit the Send Key, Check Out These Books on Business Writing

This is one of the best style books I have ever come across. The explanations and examples are clear and concise. I use it on a daily basis and would be lost without it! -- Molly, Goodreads 

Recommended reading -- Microsoft Education Competencies: Written communications

Trust me, this straightforward, compact book will keep you out of a lot of trouble. It includes several chapters on overall style, but its true value lies in the A-Z listing of common terms and usage rules.... Notice the word 'business' in the book's title. Unlike style guides that are written from a journalism perspective... The Business Style Handbook stays focused on business communication.... If I don't find the answer here, I move on to more extensive manuals. But I usually find it here quickly." -- Luke Michel, content strategist, PixelMEDIA

The second edition of The Business Style Handbook ... offers tips on business writing, including an A-to-Z guide on words that might be confused with others, or whose proper usage may not be clear. -- The Globe and Mail, Harvey Schachter

Recommended book -- U.S. Department of Agriculture's APHIS Leadership Development Toolkit

Included in the Skillsoft Books 24x7 BusinessPro collection of resources for on-demand learning.
