Super-enriched how-to book... designed to get the beginner or the pro... past the struggles of writing to the rewards of sharing something useful.

The year's best book for encouraging the beginning, or the intimidated, writer.

8 of 8 people found the following review helpful By dstrom@whaleisle.com on July 27, 1998
Format: Paperback
This is an excellent book. I would rate this as the best book on nonfiction writing. Bill Stott encourages you to break and bend the rules and tells you why you should start a sentence with "and" or "but." His writing flows perfectly and you can practically read it right through like a regular book. If you need suggestions on how to improve your writing slgihtly or a lot, this book is for you!

5 of 5 people found the following review helpful By Applied Sociologist on July 18, 2005
Format: Paperback
I had a Ph.D., needed to publish, thought I was a 'good writer' but in fact my writing was obtuse, rambled, unfocused and ineffective. A supervisor gave me this book. Within two years my writing was getting easily accepted for trade and academic publishing alike. Writing is now something I consider one of my strengths. I recommend this book to staff and students.

3 of 3 people found the following review helpful By Antoinette Kohlman on February 23, 2008
Format: Paperback
I am a PhD student. This book was recommended by an instructor who cared about making me a better scholar. Stott's writing advice is crisp, clear, and actionable. After I implemented his recommendations, my assignments were consistently noted for their quality of expression. My writing is judged on what I say (content), not how I say it (style). I will always struggle with my writing. In spite of that fact, I now have a book that guides and encourages me with practical, effective advice. I wish I'd had this book earlier in my academic career!
