Review "This book provides a thorough coverage of the technical aspects of writing, including sentence structure, rhetoric, and paragraphs. . . . I particularly appreciate the thoroughness of the book on discussing strategies for presenting concepts, arguments, and information so it will have the highest impact. The advice is very good and will definitely help students to present their concepts clearly." --Michael McGuire, University of Victoria
