Book Description

Jan. 20 2011 0195431863 978-0195431865 Second Edition
Now in a new second edition, the bestselling Writing by Choice is a comprehensive resource for learning how to write in the academic, business, and personal realms. Offering helpful guidelines without being formulaic, the text teaches students how to write clear, thoughtful prose by making informed decisions about how best to communicate their ideas. A host of features such as sample writings and readings; individual and group exercises; informative charts and graphs; annotations; and pre- and post-reading questions engage students with writing possibilities rather than limiting them with prescriptive conventions. Whether introducing students to the main types of essay-writing or navigating them through the intricacies of grammar and style, Writing by Choice remains the definitive volume for giving writers the tools they need to rise to every writing occasion.

The book is interesting but a bit too thorough for my taste. Still is a good book to learn how to read.
