This classic guide to lucid writing, initially published in Britain in 1948 as a friendly training manual for civil servants, has been lauded now for six decades. Plain Words encourages those who write as part of their job to do so with clarity and warmth. "Be short. Be simple. Be human." is the crux of the message - advice that is still valuable today, when jargon runs rampant and digital communication can be downright incomprehensible. Edited by Sir Ernest Gowers's great-granddaughter, this fourth edition of Plain Words has been gently updated but retains all of its original wit and charm. Bill Bryson calls it "vastly informative and indispensable" - browse its venerable pages and find out why! (CH)
