Hello.

I came across this sentence:
"It's tempting to let achievements speak for itself in a chronological order, but if I do that I can't do the company justice."

This is at the beginning of a new chapter in a book in which the author is writing all about the success, history, business strategies...etc of a certain company.

Might the author be saying here that it would be rude to the company if he just wrote out the achievements chronologically, and not introducing them in a more themed-way (for a more appealing introduction of the company to the readers, and to prove that the company really is that good in detail)?

But then, shouldn't :
"I can't do the company justice" be,
"it wouldn't do the company justice" ?

Thank you so much.
Any replies are welcome.

I like your interpretation. :up: It sounds good to me. :D As for changing the last part to,"it wouldn't do the company justice", it fits as long as you add it after 'but', like this, "...but, it wouldn't...."
