For every writer, a key foundational skill is word choice. It's critical to use the right word at the right time. Nancy Ragno has written a terrific tool in this book, WORD SAVVY, USE THE RIGHT WORD EVERY TIME, ALL THE TIME to help every writer in this area.
 
In the opening pages, Ragno clearly identifies her audience and what you will learn in these pages: "Being word savvy mans that you keep abreast of the times. You stay on top of important new words entering the language and are alert for words you need to know. You are aware of the keywords computers are likely to scan for your resume. You know the important terms and buzzwords in your field.
Through word savvy you stay in the loop, maintain your competitive edge, and keep on top. How can you achieve word savvy? This book tells you what you need to know. You'll learn how to:

•    Master seventy-six commonly confused word pairs.
•    Conquer fifty-two commonly misused words.
•    Use tricky singulars and plurals with assurance.
•    Include the right keywords in your resume.
•    Keep abreast of new buzzwords in your field." (Page 1-2)

As someone who has studied the language for many years, I loved reading this book and found many great reminders plus I learned a great deal from it. Becoming WORD SAVVY is a key step for every success-oriented reader. I recommend this book.
