it was amazing

Garner’s latest book is an impressive collection of his essays on writing and language. Although intended for legal writers, these essays are an essential read for anybody who loves language, is picky about grammar, and enjoys serious commentary laced with wit. Garner takes shots at legal writing with specific examples from law review articles, judges’ decisions, and briefs. The chapters cover a wide range of topics, including persuasive writing.

Language and Writing is a book to read slowly and mindfully. It is a book that will serve as a crucial reference. Anybody who writes as part of their professional duties would benefit from the quotes and guidance related to word usage and effective writing. This book would be an ideal gift for a college student or recent grad from any program, not just law school.
