I have always struggled with the frustrating dilemma of not being able to take thoughts from my head and place them into an effective argument. Elements of Argument has definitely changed that; not only does this book give you the information you need to excel as a writter, it guides you through the process of developing your thoughts into an argument of unquestionable merit.
