Excellent guide on two different levels!

I was expecting simply a set of outlines for how to write the various forms of letters, articles, etc mentioned on the cover and thought it would be a handy tool to have around. It *is* a handy tool for that and fulfilled my expectations perfectly, BUT...

... it also did more. The entire first half of the book is more of a general guide to the art and mechanics of writing. Yes, as an author myself I was quite familiar with a lot of what Ms. Scrivener discussed, but she carries on that discussion in such a personable (rather than didactic) way that it simply makes for enjoyable reading while also reminding even an experienced writer of some of the finer points of writing rules that have moved to the dust-gathering corners of the brain.

Highly recommended as a gift for anyone graduating either high school or college if they haven't gotten it already! It will reinforce what they've learned - or haven't learned - and may make the crucial difference in how a particular resume, report, or other real-life task succeeds or fails.

I wish I'd had this book earlier in my career because it taught me what's been wrong with my business writing and how to make it right, or, to use Scrivener's words, how to make it "clear, exact, natural and brief." The trick, she tells us, is to "write it the way you'd say it," not impersonally and stiffly, or "as though business writing is a foreign language in a literal translation."

I also appreciate her business savvy. She really understands the inner workings of business and shows you how to psych out and target your readers, whether with a letter, a resume or a pitch. I even learned a lot from her informative sections on grammar and punctuation. All that and this book is really fun to read. Writers would do well to copy Scrivener's warm and very human tone of voice.

"Survival Writing" is an excellent reference work. I've used it to kick start new projects. Given the economic times, I've most recently written five resumes. Scrivener's directions are clear, concise and often amusing... hardly a ponderous book.

As a professional writer and editor for more than 40 years, I found her chapter on tone, rhythm and punctuation outstanding. New writers will benefit from her commentary.

This is an author I'd like to know. I rather imagine it would be very entertaining to sit down over a cup of coffee and chat.
