  • Trim the fat from your writing
  • Strike the right tone
  • Brush up on grammar, punctuation, and usage

Unbearable narrator

I own the digital version and have been finding the information very useful. I decided to buy the Audible version so that I can listen while doing other things. I was beyond disappointed to hear Jonathan Yen's stiff, unnaturally narration. He reads as if he's making an announcement rather than reading a book. It makes listening unbearable.

Not as effective as reading

I took a chance and hoped for more when I purchased this audio book. Sadly the audio version misses the mark, an audio book on business writing isn’t as effective as a written book. The detail in the book is basic and again I expected more. I managed to get halfway through before abandoning it.
