Whenever and Wherever You Need It

For executives who need immediate and convenient access to information about correct grammar, punctuation, word usage, etc. (and especially for executives who frequently travel), here is the single best source. It can easily fit within an attaché case or carry-on bag. It also includes an "almanac of resources across the disciplines" which include oral and multimedia presentation, arts and humanities, business/economics/finance, sciences and technology, and social sciences. Readers will also appreciate having a section which explains "MLA Style Papers" as well as a "Glossary of Terms" and a "Glossary of Usage." For me, one of this pocket guide's greatest benefits is comprised of the various checklists which Lunsford provides. For example, in Chapter 34, Lunsford provides a step-by-step sequence by which to proceed from an initial analysis of context to a general topic and then to a working thesis. Those who share my high regard for this book are urged to check out Gilman's Get to the Point! as well as Strunk & White's The Elements of Style and Rodale's The Synonym Finder.
