‘On Writing Well’ by William Zinsser

The Classic Guide to Writing Nonfiction.

On Writing Well

In On Writing Well, William Zinsser practices what he preaches, writing engagingly about writing engagingly.

Some of the stuff, you'll know about already: cut back on the adverbs; keep practising; if in doubt, two short sentences are better than one long sentence; that sort of thing. But there's plenty of other food for thought in this enjoyable volume.

Highly recommended.
