(no subject)

At one point last night I awoke dreaming that benpeek and I were trapped inside Hal Duncan's Vellum. Specifically, Ben and I were digging our way down through a city, trying to find our way out through the bottom, but we kept breaking through to entire new cities. (And yes, that's also an echo of Trial of Flowers...)

Looking for good basic and intermediate books on business writing

A colleague at the day job has asked me to help him improve his business writing skills. I'm quite good at it, but have never attempted to coach or teach anyone else. Can any of you folks suggest some good basic and intermediate books on business writing -- he's concerned with his ability to create strong meeting reports, product memos, etc., rather than tech documentation or high level strategy assessments.

(I'm cross posting this to cranky_editors as well.)
