Style Guide: For Business and Technical Communicationcan help any writer produce documents that achieve outstanding results. Created by FranklinCovey, the world-renowned leader in helping organizations enhance individual effectiveness, this edition fully reflects today’s online media and global business challenges. The only style guide used in FranklinCovey’s own renowned Writing AdvantageTMand Technical Writing AdvantageTMprograms, it covers everything from document design and graphics to sentence style and word choice. This edition’s many improvements include extensive new coverage of graphics, writing for online media, and international business English. Through dozens of examples and model documents, writers learn how to overcome “writer’s block” and efficiently create documents from start to finish. FranklinCovey’s experts show how to get powerful results from every email; add distinctiveness and power to any online presence; write far more effective proposals, letters, memos, reports, and resumes; and improve all forms of documentation, from business procedures to highly technical content. You’ll learn how to quickly discover and prioritize the information you need, whether you’re planning a presentation, leading a meeting, or managing a project. The authors reveal how to design visuals that communicate messages instantly and intuitively, and use charts, color, illustrations, maps, photos, and tables to supercharge any presentation. Packed with up-to-the-minute examples, this A-Z guidebook can help you write more effectively no matter who you are – whether you’re a business or sales professional who must motivate and persuade, a technical professional who must explain challenging content more clearly and accurately, or a student who needs stronger writing skills to succeed in school and in your career.

Stephen R. Covey was born on October 24, 1932, in Salt Lake City, Utah. He married Sandra Merrill and had nine children. Covey received a B.A. from University of Utah, an M.B.A. from Harvard, and a D.R.E. from Brigham Young University. He was a teacher and administrator at BYU. Covey founded Covey Leadership Center in 1983 and has published a periodical, Executive Excellence. Covey authors books and articles on leadership, personal and organizational effectiveness, and family and interpersonal relationships. He promotes individual awareness, self-control, discipline, and a sense of purpose in seeking a balanced life. He recommends that companies treat employees more holistically to raise productivity. His works have been widely translated. His best known book is Seven Habits of Highly Effective People, first published in 1989, which has sold several million copies. Other Covey books include: Principle Centered Leadership (1991), First Things First: to Live, to Love, to Learn, and to Leave a Legacy (1994), Daily Reflections for Highly Effective People, First Things First Every Day Because Where You're Headed Is More Important Than How Fast You're Going (1997), The Seven Habits of Highly Effective Families, and Seven Habits of Highly Effective Organizations. Covey received the Thomas More College Medallion and the Utah Symphony Fiftieth Anniversary Award in 1990, and the McFeely Award of the International Management Council for contributions and service in 1991.
