Description

This book seeks to change public and legal writing—by making the ultimate case for plain language. The book gathers a large body of evidence for two related truths: using plain language can save businesses and government agencies a ton of money, and plain language serves and satisfies readers in every possible way. The book also debunks the ten biggest myths about plain writing. And it looks back on 40 highlights in plain-language history. Professor Joseph Kimble is a leading international expert on this subject. Here is the book that sums up his important work. His message is vital to every government writer, business writer, and attorney.
