    My daughter learned a lot from this book

    She used this information in her own writing skills. She loves to write! She is now reading a book called, Smitty's Cave Adventures. She really likes that book too! Good summer reading material.

    Most Outstanding Writing Book

    This is the most outstanding writing book I have ever read. Believe me I have read quite a few. Clark writes as though you - the reader - are seated in class and he, the teacher is before you, talking to you. The style he employed in writing the book is probably the first lesson an aspiring writer like me learns from.

    quite an appetizer

    I think this is the first book I ever read on writing.

    Cruising the bookstore, it sat on the shelf cover forward. The nibble pencil caught my eye. Size seemed right. Picked it up, not too heavy. Example tools on the back were fanciful cool.

    Scanned the table of contents. Flipped the pages, and tasted some. Bought the book. Read it through. Began buying copies for others.

    Still returning to it just for kicks. Open to a random page, and reread.

    Things click.

    I'm not a pro. Don't really teach. Yet I suggest "Writing Tools" has utility for anyone who has to read other people's writing.

    Sent copies to my Gen Xer nephew and niece. Hope they tried it.

    Wonderful!

    I am enjoying this book! The information contained within is clear and well written. I am using it to teach my teenage son to write better papers, and it has proven to be very useful and easy to use.

    Very glad I purchased

    I've just read the first chapter, and already I'm hooked. Very good. Very clear and easy to read (as a book on writing should be--but I appreciate, nonetheless), and the ideas made me want to write and to re-examine what I have written.

    Great book for aspiring writers!

    As a neophyte in the world, I found this book of 'tools' incredibly helpful and inspiring. I highly recommend it to all prospective writers and journalists.
