This is actually an amazing book in terms of ease of readability and helpfulness in improving writing style. Prior to reading this book, I had a vague (what I thought was thorough) understanding of the different styles of writing. I was raised by very artsy parents who were always enrolling me in writing classes in the hopes that they’d have a kid who was an author someday. Went the other way and became a scientist, and while I loved my years of creative writing, I lost some skill after writing for scientific research. This book gives the basics on how to cite and whatnot, but what I loved was the examples of various styles of writing and how they are broken down. I feel this would benefit people in any career track; creative writers, technical writers, doctors, lawyers, scientists, journalists, sociologists, etc. It’s hard to know what skills you’re lacking until you read a book that gives you a million new techniques to improve your writing style. It has a great chapter on analysis writing. Frankly, just reading the analysis chapter would benefit a lot of people in their ability to analyze media in general; ads, journals, newspapers, tv.. If you’re a student and required to read this, don’t hesitate to dig in and actually learn. If you’re browsing books and considering this to improve your skills, I think you’ll find this very comprehensive, straight forward, and helpful.

Great book!

Used this for a freshman English college course–had great selections of literature for all different kinds of majors. Helpful for writing different kinds of essays.

Met my requirements for a used book and hopefully I can sell it when I’m done with the class.

Great product, great price.

Exactly what I needed for my class and at a much better price than the college bookstore could offer.
