HBR Guide to Better Business Writing – podcast

A fifteen minute podcast interview with Bryan Garner, author of the HBR Guide to Better Business Writing, here, is worth a listen.

My favourite takeaway is the Flowers Paradigm, named after its creator, Betty Sue Flowers.  It’s a four-step approach to writing anything:

  • Madman
  • Architect
  • Carpenter
  • Judge

Worth listening to just for this.  And if you’re too hasty, it starts at 9:25 in the podcast.
