Adios, Strunk and White by Gary Hoffman, Glynis Hoffman

Adios, traditional grammar! Learn style for business, academic, scientific, and creative writing through concepts that appeal to our rhythmic, spatial, and playful sensibilities. Adios, traditional organization! Expand writing beyond the five-paragraph, academic word-box. Adios, neutered "objectivity"! Develop a distinct voice required by major university application forms and journal editors. Adios, arid thought! Merge style with critical thinking, logic, and research. Adios, textbook committee-voice! Everything is explained with verve. The Hoffman's practice what they preach.
