Recensioner

An essential and no nonsense guide to any kind of writing, but especially useful to the person who wants to communicate in the "real world" -- that is, in business, academia, or personal correspondence. It's not as much about style or spelling or punctuation, but about how to get the fat, useless, rambly stuff that you were convinced made you sound smarter in highschool out of your writing so people can figure out what you are trying to say.

Your writing will improve exponentially if you apply Lanham's principles during the revision process. Lanham patiently describes each technique and convincingly explains its value.
