Write to the Point: A Master Class on the Fundamentals of Writing for Any Purpose
by Sam Leith Author
Learn the rules of written language so you can break them—or otherwise make them work for your purposes. This book is both irreverent and practical, providing a solid primer to English grammar as it's taught in school, but also as it's evolving in various contexts. In this book, you can refresh your memory on hyphenations and quotation marks, read an entertaining instructional essay about how to edit your writing for clarity, delve into debates about contentious grammatical issues like double negatives and pronouns, and advice about writing style in different formats such as emails, cover letters, or blog posts. An instructional writing reference that's actually well-written without detracting from the useful presentation of information. A more up-to-date, less snobbish alternative to Strunk & White.
