Reviews

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent Guide to Good Writing Most of the books I have read on writing promise much but deliver little. "On Writing Well" is a notable exception. Mr.Zinsser gives practical advice about all aspects of the writing profession. Worth buying, reading and using as a future reference source.
