"The Literate Executive is built upon one simple rule: become a better writer to become a better communicator. Who better to lead the way than author and Associate Professor of English/Humanities, Dr. Laurie Rozakis? With a friendly style, Rozakis makes this refresher course in Grammar 101 palatable to even the most sophisticated executives. She covers the effective use of language in the real world--correct usage, grammar, punctuation, and spelling--all in a business context." "Each chapter includes well-constructed models of today's most common business documents--memos, emails, sales letters, proposals, press releases, annual reports, and resumes. Plus, there are practice exercises using real-life business examples." "By the time you have finished reading The Literate Executive you can adapt your new grasp of English style and usage to create impressively polished professional documents.
