Summary

Getting it Acrossis a practical guide for researchers and graduate students who need to publish their findings. The focus of the book is on effective writing: using strong sentences, clear word choice, and effective structure to get the message across, and to address in this way issues for both native and nonnative writers. The book includes more than a hundred examples of actual written texts, mostly taken from the architecture and planning field. Using this "real text" approach and written in a light and accessible tone, the book addresses-in a very practical way-all the issues facing the academic writer: structure, grammar, word choice, and especially style.
