Summary

Written with a strong personal voice that respects students and the writing challenges they face.The Curious Writeris not like other textbooks on the market today. Where the tone of other books is usually dry and detached,The Curious Writeris familiar and inviting. The author shuns a pedantic writing style and instead reaches out to students on equal terms, invoking his own writing experiences and those of his students as a way of illustrating the process of becoming a better writer. The author's voice is one that teaches by example rather than rule. A strong emphasis on critical reading skills.The Curious Writerbelieves that writing and reading are complementary skills. The book also holds that in today's media saturated world the ability to read well extends beyond the printed word to visual messages. For anyone wanting to improve their writing skills.
