When the quality of our words really matters, Persuasive Writing can help. It features a simple, three-step process for mastering the principles of written business communication. First: define the purpose of the message. Second: organize the necessary information. Third: support your opinions with solid proof. The CD-ROM that comes with the book contains additional tools, tips, and tricks so any business professional can develop an effective personal writing style.
