Steven Pinker’s A Sense of Style: Energy Efficiency in Writing.

He makes you get to the point. He does away with sentence starters. He’d reduce sentences like “I’d like to suggest that the authorities should improve upon the landscaping” into “Improve the landscaping”

He improves warning labels on products. Imagine a warning label written by you, which didn’t warn well enough. Just coz you were too lazy to read Pinker’s book.
