The letters you send are an expression of your personality. They signify to the world how you wish to be percieved from both the words you choose and the stationery you use, to the layout of the letter and its general appearance. In this book, the author provides a companion volue to his "Bloomsbury Guide to Good Manners". He gives specific advice to those afflicted by "Postman's Block", (the inability to get down to letter writing) and provides many specimen letters to help encourage reluctant correspondents to fashion their own personal, social, business and professional mail. Above all, Nigel Rees has tried, by surveying the whole field of letter writing (which includes such unlikely areas as chain letters, fan mail and hate mail), to help the reader see the value, pleasure and purpose of correspondence. Other work by the author includes the "Bloomsbury Dictionary of Popular Phrases", the "Bloomsbury Dictionary of Phrase and Allusion" and the "Bloomsbury Guide to Good Manners".
