Review from previous edition An excellent book ... indispensable to anyone compiling a style guide ... The multitude of real-life examples demonstrating the practices described make the book equally useful to experienced writers checking specific points and to novices needing broader guidance. * Institute of Scientific and Technical Communicators (ISTC) Magazine, Sept 2008 *
This is a most useful addition to the shelves of anyone who has to write whether it is for the web, report-writing, letters, emails, instruction manuals or legal documents. Here is clarity and common sense - this little book provides it all and for a very reasonable cost indeed. * Reference Reviews, Joan Williamson *
[S]hould be on every writer's bookshelf * Susanne Geercken and Alistair Reeves, Medical Writing *
A pleasure to read ... the Oxford Guide to Plain English should be on every editor's bookshelf. * Claire Bacon, Chartered Institute of Editing and Proofreading *
This book has been on my list of recommended reading ever since lawyers first started asking me to suggest a book on clear writing ... Following even half the advice in this book will make you one of the clearest communicators in the legal profession. * Daphne Perry, The Law Society Gazette *
This is an excellent book! Information is presented in a crisp, clear and easy to read way. The principles are easily grasped, and the use of examples helps the reader to test their understanding and reinforce their own learning. * Warren Singer, Communicator *
