The most practical book about writing I’ve ever read. It shows you down to the point with real examples how to write about anything you can think of. This book had a significant impact on my blog style and even on the way I talk and present subjects in public. I am thrilled I found this, and it is on my list for yearly review to remind myself on what is important when writing and expressing myself.
From the book:
On Writing Well has been praised for its sound advice, its clarity and the warmth of its style. It is a book for everybody who wants to learn how to write or who needs to do some writing to get through the day, as almost everybody does in the age of e-mail and the Internet. Whether you want to write about people or places, science and technology, business, sports, the arts or about yourself in the increasingly popular memoir genre, On Writing Well offers you fundamental principles as well as the insights of a distinguished writer and teacher. With more than a million copies sold, this volume has stood the test of time and remains a valuable resource for writers and would-be writers.
