Can't make those sentences say what you mean?

by HSteacher on Aug 15, 2007

Then get Richard Lanham's book, Revising Prose. Incredibly enough, he has created a VERY simple method, which, if followed, will turn extremely lousy, wandering sentences into very clear sentences. You do not need any special background or English courses to get started, just a desire to QUICKLY improve your writing and thinking. I first encountered Revising Prose 22 years ago in a college writing course, and Mr. Lanham has improved it continuously since then. More helpful than any other book I have used, and very quick reading, ( no grammatical jargon), Prof. Lanham's book is a genuine public service. If you have struggled to write clear sentences, please get this book, today. It will open your eyes!
