it was amazing

This is one of my favorite books on writing, in large part because it is so well written. The advice is practical. Zinsser believes in cutting away excess prose, in using the precise word, in forming clear, crisp sentences that read well. He doesn't promise that creating such prose is easy, but this guide is a good first step.
