This Business of Writing shows how to use English with confidence. More than a style guide, this uniquely Irish text is a reference and guide on how to write articles, academic papers, speeches, presentations, reports and summaries. It will appeal to accountants, business executives, journalists and students at all levels.

Over six sections, its experienced authors advise you on:

  • The concept of language
  • The written worlds of study and work
  • Online research and writing
  • English usage, grammar and punctuation
  • A comprehensive miscellany of abbreviations, currencies, conversions, charts and country groupings.

If you want to communicate with clarity and purpose, This Business of Writing is a light, authoritative and witty read that manages to blend critical thinking with the correct use of the comma.
