Plain English at Work, A Guide to Writing and Speaking, Bailey E., 1996.

   This book combines—and significantly updates—two previously separate books of mine:
• The Plain English Approach to Business Writing
• A Practical Guide for Business Speaking
The goal of both books was similar: to help people communicate clearly and easily to busy people at work.
Plain English is the key. It helps you as a writer and as a speaker. Combining the previous books now gives you help in two very important types of communication for people in business: writing and speaking.

Plain English at Work, A Guide to Writing and Speaking, Bailey E., 1996


Who is writing plain English these days?
It’s hard to believe, but many people still write businessese. But many have also shifted to plain English. In other words, there’s a “fence”—with some people on the bureaucratic side and others on the plain English side.

Fortunately, more and more people are moving to the plain English side—and when people reach that side, they never jump back. The advantages of plain English are just too obvious.
