If the message is clear, this is time well spent. But when the messages require further e-mails to explain the original e-mail, time is wasted." "I often wonder: Should I use a greeting? If so, what kind of greeting? I usually use Sincerely for my closing, but I notice that most of the international e-mails close with Regards. Should I use Regards?" "If I'm sending an e-mail to Sweden, do I write dates like we do here in the United States, or should I write them like they do in Sweden?" "Right now our biggest need is to learn how to use e-mail to better manage our teams of workers. Our second challenge is to implement an e-mail policy."

A symphony can be widely appreciated, but created only by a genius. Good writing, however, can be written (and read) by anyone if we give it the gift of our time. And a sentence might be as near as many of us will get to orchestrating beauty. Enter universally praised historian Professor Joe Moran. Using minimal technical terms, First You Write a Sentence. is his unpedantic explanation of how the most ordinary words can be turned into verbal constellations of extraordinary grace. With examples from the Bible and Shakespeare to Orwell and Diana Athill, and with support from scientific studies of what most fires people's minds, he shows how we can all write in a way that is vivid, clear and engaging.

It's an elegant gem in praise of the English sentence.
