International Book Awards honors
The Practiced Business Writer
A Briefings Media Group publication has won the “Business: Writing/Publishing” category in the 2011 International Book Awards. The Practiced Business Writer: An ESL/EFL Handbook is a self-study guide that teaches non-native speakers of English to improve their writing and shows them how to avoid the most common errors in business writing.
This year’s contest yielded a large number of entries from authors and publishers around the world, which were then narrowed down to the final results in 140 categories, said Jeffrey Keen, president and CEO of JPX Media Group, which sponsors the awards.
“IBA’s success begins with the enthusiastic participation of authors and publishers and continues with our distinguished panel of industry judges who bring to the table their extensive editorial, PR, marketing and design expertise,” Keen said in announcing the awards last month.
The Practiced Business Writer, the first book of its kind designed specifically for non-native English speakers, shows how to:
- Avoid grammatical mistakes.
- Proofread for punctuation, spelling and capitalization errors.
- Avoid ambiguous writing.
- Be concise.
- Choose words carefully.
- Write clear, simple sentences.
- Organize ideas so that readers will find them easy to follow.
The book and accompanying CD-ROM contain hundreds of real-world examples and in-depth answer keys that explain the correct answers. This book is a must-have resource for all non-native English speakers who want to excel in business writing.
