Exactly as advertised

On Writing Well was in perfect condition and arrived very quickly.

Apt title

by Singadman on Nov 4, 2011

As a professional writer as well as someone running a course on copywriting, I have to admit this book made me think harder about writing skills. If you need good written comunication skills, this will be a few hours well spent. Well recommended by me.

Solid guide to the inner working of writing for students, teachers and everyone else. Zinsser give me hope the American tradition in English has not passed this veil of tears yet.

Zinsser?s ?On Writing Well? is doubtless a classic, updated and re-released in a new edition every 5 years. The book tells you just what the title says--how to write well. The advice is equally applicable to all who need to communicate written ideas in daily life, be they professional writers, students, academics, or managers. For writers of non-fiction? of whatever style?there?s no better instructional book. ?On Writing Well? is a pleasure to read. Zinsser walks the talk, producing a book that?s simple, clear and engaging. Oftentimes when looking to relax, rather than pick up a novel, I reached for this book for an easy and pleasant read.
