About this book
Prose for Programmers is a book for programmers. It is a guide to mastering the most difficult programming language of all: human language.
Just as with programming, we write with particular goals in mind. That goal might be as simple as reminding someone about a requirement or as complex as justifying an entirely new architecture for a product. But in every case we write in order to achieve something.
This book will teach you how to achieve those goals more effectively with clearer, more persuasive writing.
