"Writing", says William Zinsser, "is not a special language that belongs to English teachers and a few other sensitive souls who have 'a gift for words. ' Writing is the logical arrangement of thought. Anyone who thinks clearly should be able to write clearly, about any subject at all." How to do that--and how to use writing as a means of learning subjects that have intimidated generations of Americans--is the theme of this provocative and helpful book by the author of the classic On Writing Well." Hard cover in brand new condition. Text block clean and tight. No markings noted. Dust jacket in brand new condition. Stated First Edition.
