Recensioner

Orientado a la escritura en Inglés. Aconseja comenzando por la puntuación y después sobre expresiones y errores comunes a evitar, siempre sobre la redacción en Inglés.

Algunas elecciones son subjetivas y sin explicación. En puridad no es un libro de "estilo", más bien un mínimo opúsculo de puntuación y escritura.

Este livro é muito citado em obras de escritores que falam da escrita. Muitos citam este pequeno livro, tão simples, tão prático, mas que nos enriquece com tantas sugestões de uma boa escrita.
O original é em inglês e, por isso, alguns casos seriam muito mais óbvios na língua nativa.
Considero que é um livro essencial para quem tem ambições a escrever ao nível profissional. Para todos os pontos abordados, tem exemplos concretos, como fica bem, como fica menos bem. É muito objetivo, seguindo as regras que sugere, poupar nas palavras, ser objetivo e cumprir a razão primordial: que quem nos leia nos compreenda!
Recomendo. Lê-se em duas ou três horas, mas é um apoio de cabeceira. Para consultar sempre que necessário.
