The second edition of the Public Relations Writer’s Handbook offers a simple, step-by-step approach to creating a wide range of writing, from basic news releases, pitch letters, biographies, and media alerts, to more complex and sophisticated speeches, media campaign proposals, crisis responses, and in-house publications. In addition, the thoroughly expanded and updated second edition shows how to keep up with the best practices of the public relations profession, as well as with the speed made possible and required by the digital age.

The public relations writer's handbook provides a good overview of general PR practice.
However, the use of grammer and punctuation throughout the book is quite poor. I expected more from a PR
WRITER'S handbook! Watch out for the use of "however" and punctuation misuse such as "press's".
