Style: Lessons in Clarity and Grace asserts that good style is a matter of making informed choices in the service of one's readers. This text will teach you how to adjust your writing to communicate with your audience more effectively. While writers know best what they want to say, readers ultimately decide if they've said it well. This long-established and highly respected text builds on that premise, providing detailed, concise instruction.
The 13th Edition includes up-to-date advice on gender-neutral writing, as well as writing for global audiences. The intent of the text is to help you understand what readers expect so that, informed by those expectations, you can more clearly communicate your ideas. This book is all you'll need to understand the principles of effective writing.
