How Much is Plain Language Worth? | Center for Plain Language

I must get this new book on plain language by law professor Joe Kimble, Writing for Dollars, Writing to Please: The Case for Plain Language in Business, Government, and Law.

According to the description at this site:
The book sets out the elements of plain language, debunks the 10 biggest myths about it, summarizes 40 historical highlights, and summarizes 50 (no less) studies on the benefits of plain language for everyone -- readers, writers, businesses, and government agencies.
Joe is a long-respected advocate for plain language. I got to know him when I was website manager and discussion group moderator for the Plain Language Association InterNational (PLAIN).

You can find more of Joe's plain-language articles and other resources about plain language at the PLAIN website. The website of the Center of Plain Language also has useful resources.
