Praise from the first edition:
"Redish has done her homework and created a thorough overview of the issues in writing for the Web.

Twelve billion voices talking, but saying mostly nothing. If just 1% of those pages followed Ginny's practical, clear advice, the world would be a better place. Fortunately, you can follow her advice for 100% of your own site's pages, so pick up a copy of Letting Go of the Words and start communicating effectively today." --Lou Rosenfeld, co-author, Information Architecture for the World Wide Web
