Comprehensive, Accessible Guide to Clear Writing

by JAS35Drakken on Aug 31, 2007

The 10th edition of Jean Wyrick's "Steps to Writing Well" is a delight. Regardless of whether you're a student in high school, college, or grad school, you'll benefit greatly from this comprehensive, accessible guide to critical reading and effective writing. As a long-time editor who's worked with writers in both institutional and corporate settings, I've found that far too many authors, especially the highly educated, believe the depth of their subject matter expertise automatically translates into clear, compelling prose. The best athletes, surgeons, performers, and writers know there is no substitute for a thorough grasp of the fundamentals of their discipline. Sound technique learned and practiced can transform talent into artistry. Under Jean Wyrick's tutelage, you'll learn how to analyze text, organize your thoughts, and confidently produce well-written products that will allow others to benefit from your knowledge and passion.
