As a seasoned engineer who dreaded english classes in college, but now enjoys writing enough to take a course in the subject, this book presented a digestable approach for writing analytically and thoughtfully. Though some might criticize the authors for trying to package writing into simple steps and methods, I disagree that his approach talks down to the audience. As an engineer, I appreciate that most any formidable task, like writing a coherent paper, can be broken down into smaller tasks that are easier to accomplish and understand, if presented correctly. Writing doesn't come easy for me, and the methods presented here were not trivial, but thought provoking. I can't say if this book would help those writing fiction, I believe it would, but for the non-fiction I wrote, this book was very worthwhile.

The book writes in the style that captures students' attention; not the usual style of textbooks, which is a huge plus! Only read the chapters that were assigned, but the book contains lots of god tips.

2 of 3 people found the following review helpful By Reader on July 26, 2013
Format: Paperback
Good points: The focus is on teaching students an often neglected but important skill, developing a detailed and original understanding of subject material through writing. The authors provide a wide range of techniques and examples for achieving this objective. This comprehensive guide to writing also includes useful content regarding electronic research, syntax, diction, and grammar. Bad points: There are too many writing techniques, often redundant. Searching for the techniques was difficult, often preceded by a far too lengthy introduction and discussion. This approach might be well received by an English teacher, but for a time-pressed college student, time spent reading and searching this verbose book is time not spent writing an essay. A far better organization would be to condense the writing techniques to a smaller number, each labeled and placed in an appendix. Introducing each writing technique early in the chapter, in an easy to discern table, would also help the college student find and utilize these resources. The lengthy discussion could be placed in a later section of each chapter, content ignored by the time-pressed college student but available to the college English professor.

This book is very reader-friendly, unlike most English texts. It gives great examples of each topic introduced and guides the reader away from the typical high school essay in five-paragraph format. All high school students who plan to attend university should use this text to better understand college writing skills.
