Whether you are a long-time advocate of plain English or whether you've only recently started to wonder if you really could do away with the boilerplate, you may be interested in a new book by Professor Joseph Kimble, Lifting the Fog of Legalese, Essays on Plain Language (Carolina Academic Press 2006). Joe has long been a soldier on the plain language front, and this book ties together many of his previous essays. He also includes some how-to examples and a "plain language bookshelf," so you can find even more inspiration and instruction. Of course Joe's own writing style makes for a nice, crisp read.
