Helen Gurley Brown is the original Cosmo girl: a savvy, attractive woman with a clear idea of what she wants and the confidence she'll get it. With an unstoppable combination of charm and ever-more-effective communication skills, she rose steadily from ad-agency secretary to sought-after copywriter to bestselling author and Editor-in-Chief of Cosmopolitan -- the world's largest-circulation young women's magazine. Every aspect of her career has had to do with communicating by words.In her decades as a publishing superstar, she has assigned and edited thousands of pieces by writers of all kinds, from seasoned professionals who needed just a little help with polishing their words to talented beginners with a good idea but not much experience. She gave them all the same straightforward advice -- and now she shares it with everyone who wants to write clear, effective, colorful, memorable prose.
