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.

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

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
