How To Write Anything is Laura Brown's new 596-page book that is a practical guide to everything you’ll ever need to write -- at work, at school, and in your personal life.

With more than 200 how-to entries and easy-to-use models organized into three comprehensive sections on work, school, and personal life, How to Write Anything covers a wide range of topics that make it an essential guide for the whole family.

The book will help you write effectively for all these situations:

  • You want your boss to fund a special project.
  • How can you write a persuasive email that will win his approval?
  • It's time to apply to college. How can you write an essay that will stand out?
  • The mother of one of your co-workers has died. What's the best way to express your condolences?

Grounded in a common-sense approach, friendly and supportive, How to Write Anything is Internet-savvy, with advice throughout about choosing the most appropriate medium for your message: e-mail or pen and paper.
