The Analytic Writing Guide is a user’s guide for writing papers, short memos, and emails when the objective is to inform a busy reader inundated with other papers and preoccupied with other tasks. It focuses on ideas and information: making sure that all the information needed to understand the main points is in the paper and in the right order, minimizing and eliminating extraneous information and ideas, and resolving inconsistencies. This book offers a mix of strategic and tactical advice for writers of analytic papers, ranging from how to get started to how to order information in a paragraph. The objective is to show how best to inform a busy reader or decisionmaker who is often preoccupied with other tasks.
