It provides students with the ability to understand, construct and manipulate written information in a way that is directly transferable to a wide variety of professional situations. Thoroughly revised and updated throughout, the second edition contains a new chapter on teamwork, a section on plagiarism and additional content on digital writing to better reflect the impact this has had on professional writing.
