How to Not Write Bad: The Most Common Writing Problems and the Best Ways to Avoid Them

by Ben Yagoda Author

The one-word version: "Read." 

The longer version is an introduction to how to avoid common pitfalls in vocabulary, grammar, and style. Commas, prepositions, cliches, eggcorns... learn to handle them all with aplomb (or drop them like a hot potato). If you're self-conscious about your sentence construction, this book will help you work out some of the kinks.
