For over fifteen year, "Write Right!" has proven indispensable for businesspeople, students, writers, and anyone else who needs a quick, friendly, easy-to-use guide to punctuation, grammar, spelling, and other sometimes-slippery matters of style. Now, as e-mail and faxes make written communications more vital than ever (and spell-check programs have introduced new possibilites for error), this book has been revised and updated to address the latest issue as well as the perennial questions (who or whom? that or which? colon or semicolon?)
