This comprehensive book can serve several purposes: a textbook for an actual course, or a self-study manual, or a refresher for the occasional writer - or all three. Included are important items - usually unknown o the novice and rarely offered in print - as where to find material for writing articles, formats to use, deciding where to submit an article, and knowing what happens when the manuscript or book goes to the editor or publisher.

This is a "how-to" book, written in a lucid and informal and interesting style - actually a conversational tone. Replete with strongly illustrative and practical examples, it emphasizes what a tutor might offer in person. To add to the enjoyment of the book, the author uses humor from time to time - sometimes subtle and sly, sometimes overt - to help emphasize important points.
