Not Just for Lawyers Anymore

Mr. Garner's book is primarily aimed at attorneys who do briefs, memoranda of law, motions for summary judgment, &c., but guess what? It's a treasure trove of advice for ALL writers and types of writing, even fiction. Since reading it, I've put its advice to practical use in everything from email to state supreme court briefs and I am convinced it's the best book on writing since Strunk and White. Highly recommended, especially for all of us windbags and obfuscatory wordsmiths: Garner teaches you to pare down and prop up. A remarkable tome to say the least.
