Surprisingly Practical  April 2, 2011
by


I read this textbook on how to make my ideas more clear. My sentences and paragraphs now say what I really mean - before my writing was "fuzzy" and my point was unintentionally hidden. The textbook helps me to think clearly, and it helps me understand other's writing more clearly - an unexpected result. The textbook does not tell me how I should write. It provides nifty techniques on how to quickly revise my writing for greater clarity.






Style : Lessons in Clarity and Grace: 5 out of 5 stars based on 1 user reviews.
