The popular, brief rhetoric that treats writing as thinking, WRITING ANALYTICALLY, Sixth Edition, offers a series of prompts that lead you through the process of analysis and synthesis and help you to generate original and well-developed ideas. The book's overall point is that learning to write well means learning to use writing as a way of thinking well. To that end, the strategies of this book describe thinking skills that employ writing. As you will see, this book treats writing as a tool of thought–a means of undertaking sustained acts of inquiry and reflection.
This book is perhaps the most important skills book I have ever encountered. The analytic heuristics in this book make interpreting anything from text, picture, or film fulfilling. The book is designed to have the analytic tools work in social science, hard science, humanities and art. I use these tools for my high school students and they allow what used to be bland, surface level observation to become deeply thoughtful and defensible interpretations. As a teacher this book is an essential tool. It is written for college students so secondary educators will need to modify it.

This book has allowed me to look at writing outside of the box. If you think you’ve got basic writing down, think again! I recommend this for any student looking to reshape his or her writing skills, in an unconventional way. The profound impact of this book is timeless, writing is taught as a visual thought process, which seems to be lacking in today’s academic world. Learn to look at your sentences as shapes, rather than mere words. You are on your way to writing up a fury…Make it happen folks!
