Letting Go of the Words

Letting Go of the Words: Writing Web Content That Works
By Ginny Redish
Morgan Kaufman, 2012. Nonfiction. 333 pages

No website, no matter how great the design, will be successful without well-laid-out and well-written content. Author Ginny Redish, a linguist by training, is an expert on information design. In her book, she shows the reader how to produce clear, easy to comprehend writing that will help users find what they came to the website to learn and retain what they read.

Unsurprisingly, this book is easy to read and immediately put into practice the many great words of advice. Before reading this book, I thought I already understood how to write good web content, but Redish has given me new guidance that I had not previously found on websites that seek to provide the same information.

I would highly recommend this book to any wanting to learn how to write more clearly for any type of writing, not just on the web.
