In the preface to this book, the author writes that it is aimed primarily at those with some experience of Quakerism and who understand something about Quaker processes. Those interested in language or historical aspects of business English may also find nuggets of interest. Those who are, have been, or are becoming clerks, will also find the book useful in that it tells us a lot about how Friends wrote minutes in the past and how we do it today. Despite the author’s academic background, the words flow easily and the book is easy to digest and understand.
