My daughter is interested in studying journalism so I initially bought this book just for her. After reviewing it I'm now buy another one for myself as well as my nephews. The amount of detail in this book is so impressive, by far the most comprehensive book on writing I've come across.

I bought this book in order to learn how to write better. The first section on style changed my approach to writing. I learned so much about punctuation, grammar, sentence construction, word usage, and much more. I found other sections in the book very interesting and complete including how to construct articles, journalism values, journalism history, publication and setting up a platform. The author does a great job of making the craft of writing interesting and brings in correlates from other fields like psychology, medicine, education and so forth. His writing style is clear and engaging. Anybody who wants to write excellent articles and get them published would benefit greatly from reading this book. It's a one-stop resource! I really enjoy this book and highly recommend it. Kudos to the author!

I love this book!  It's packed with information and so much easier to read than any of my textbooks. I've learned to much already.  I’ve been using the style section to write papers in my coursework and plan on using the tips on freelance writing soon! I'm recommending this book to all my friend and classmates.
