Very Good Book  May 14, 2011
by


I consider this textbook to be one of the best how-to-write books I've read. This is not a technical textbook, but is recommended for a more holistic approach to thinking about how to write and how to improve your written communication. The new edition has been re-engineered to reflect and build on the actual writing processes of students and does even more to prepare them for the writing they will do in other college courses. I highly recommend it to anyone who wants a detailed plan for learning to be an excellent writer.






The St. Martin's Guide to Writing Short Edition: 5 out of 5 stars based on 1 user reviews.
