Who doesn't hate wading through wordy paragraphs? Unfortunately, many writers don't realize when they are padding their sentences and obscuring their meaning. Enter To the Point, the essential guide to writing succinctly. Featuring hundreds of new entries, this freshly updated edition is complete with:

. A guide to the basics of writing concisely, including how to reduce the number of words in a phrase, substitute a single word for a phrase, and delete extraneous words and phrases.

. The "Dictionary of Concise Writing," which gives concise alternatives to thousands of wordy phrases. Language expert Robert Hartwell Fiske uses each wordy phrase in a sentence and then rewrites or deletes the phrase entirely to show how the sentence can be improved.

. The brand new "Guide to Obfuscation: A Reverse Dictionary," which helps writers build a more pithy vocabulary.

To the Point is the perfect reference book for anyone who wants to communicate more effectively through clear and beautiful writing.
