Rated 5 out of 5 by from Very useful handbook Browsing through the university bookstore and a quick glimpse had me convinced. It may be and small but it is definitely one of those books to revisit over and over again. In short, this book is very concise, well organized and informative. Highly recommended for intro university courses or any professional writing...
