The AMA Handbook of Business Documents is a wealth of information for any business writer. This desk reference dons 102 document examples in alphabetical order. The handbook gives the reader a description of what each document entails, a list of tips when writing the document and a list of each situation that might warrant this type of document. There is also at least one example of each document. Documents covered range from your typical business letter, annual reports, grant proposals job descriptions, meeting minutes, resumes and even resignation letters.
For an experienced writer, this handbook might be too basic. But for your average writer or for someone that is looking for ideas or a starting point, this handbook would be an ideal reference guide on your bookshelf.
