Overview

100 Writing Remedies is the only workbook/reference that shows students how to debug faulty writing and improve their communication skills. With it, your students can benefit from the same professional instruction other writers receive when attending seminars by Edmond H. Weiss. Writing must never be as volatile as speech--because the function of writing is to permit communication across time and space.
