The Hoffman's book argues for and demonstrates the necessary link between creative writing and critical anaylsis. As an English/Philosophy major at Berkeley, I've learned countless new skills that have improved my writing, reading, thinking and cooking abilities. Muchas Gracias!Was this review helpful?

Since I am a fraud investigator, I especially enjoyed the 'Scrub' section in Adios, Strunk and White because I have noticed the way people perpetrate through their language usage and misusage. Also, the 'Pause,' 'Fusion,' and 'Filter' sections of the book have made me more proficient at capturing the nuances of the cases I handle when I write the fraud reports. This book is a real treat!Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback. Report this reviewThank you, this review has been flagged.
