Overview

The book offers you the opportunity to understand how sentences are structured so that you can improve your writing. You might need to add to your understanding of grammar in order to make yourself a better writer and editor, or you might need to polish your sentences to impress your readers.

Because this book is divided into two sections, you may begin with the section on style. Any unfamiliar grammatical terms can be cross-referenced with the first section on grammar. You will find examples and exercises for practice. As well, the index lists common writing errors so that you can delve into your own issues. There also is a handy punctuation chart that simplifies those long-winded explanations for comma and semicolon usage. You'll learn how to craft your sentences for impact on your readers, and you'll come to appreciate the talent of your favorite authors by understanding their stylistic decisions. Ultimately, you will learn how to write for various situations and various readers, making you an effective writer or speaker.
