As computers become ubiquitous in our society, more people are focusing on learning technology--often at the expense of developing more basic academic skills, most notably proper writing.Revised and enhanced, this critically acclaimed and highly praised handbook provides a light, but thorough approach to learning better writing style.
This book has been by my side for a long time. It was fustrating at first because much of the book is about developing an "ear" for writing. The assumption is that you have done so much reading of good prose that you'll be able to hear the right words to write.
The book is helpful today but was fustrating when I first picked it up.
Essential reading for anybody wanting to write well. Aimed at engineers and compsci types, the pictures of cats and short (usually 1 or 2 pages, sometimes up to 10) lessons are excellent. Don't try and read it all in one glob though as your brain is likely to explode. Dip into it now and then.
