it was amazing
bookshelves: non-fiction, read_2017

When I first started reading this book, I was surprised I was enjoying it so much. It is great.

It shouldn't surprise me that I liked this book so much. I read a ton. I appreciate good writing and enjoy good word usage. This book has all of that.

The book presents examples of good and bad writing. Sometimes the bad writing will be rewritten to be clearer. Eventually the book prescribes some rules.

I checked out a Kindle version of this book from my local library. I've already almost bought a copy so I can reference examples to help guide me towards improving my writing.
