Editorial Reviews


It is hard to imagine a more practical how-to book on the subject of writing than the one turned out by this husband and wife team. The Meyers provide numerous clear and detailed guidelines that will be a godsend to the novice struggling with his/her first writing project, as well as a welcome aid to the more seasoned writer occasionally floundering about for just the right technique to develop an idea. -- Voice of Youth Advocates

Reading "How to Write" is like discovering the trick behind a magic act. Once the act is understood, it isn't nearly as awesome as it had seemed. It becomes almost easy to learn and execute. "How to Write" can be read in less than an hour and should be kept thereafter between the dictionary and the thesaurus. -- Harriet Gerard, Hearst Feature Service

Seamless, clear prose is what "How to Write" is about. Like Strunk's classic, "Elements of Style," and Fowler's masterful volume, "The King's English," the Meyer book is about common sense. -- Wesley Pruden, The Washington Times

This is the most helpful book the beginning writer can buy. -- William Safire, The New York Times

From the Publisher

This book is widely used in colleges and universities throughout the world, not only in writing courses but in all courses whose instructors want to emphasize the importance of clear and concise communication. In addition, businesses throughout the world use "How to Write" as a guide, as do parents who are home schooling their children.
