Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher

A concise, witty, practical book on style that is as entertaining as it is genuinely instructive. --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.

From the Inside Flap

"Books on writing tend to be windy, boring, and impractical. I intend this one to be different - short, fun, and genuinely useful."

Writing with Style is certainly that. In this fast-moving guide, John Trimble masterfully equips you with all the essentials you need to be a confident, self-sufficient writer. He takes the mystery out of how skilled writers actuallly think, explains why the fundamentals are so fundamental, arms you with dozens of practical writing tips, and liberates you from the straitjacket of outmoded stylistic taboos. He even manages to make common sense out of punctuation.

Best of all, Trimble's style is as fresh as his approach - in fact, his style is a superb example of all that he is trying to convey on the art of writing.

In this Silver Anniversary Edition, additional words of wisdom are included and, for the first time, an index has been added. The second edition will continue to be an indispensable classic reference for the next 25 years.
