By Taz on 30 Sept. 2009
Format: Paperback
This book is exactly what it says on the cover - brilliant! It's fully comprehensive, covering everything from punctuation to improving your writing style. I particularly like the way the information is set out in a concise and very accessible way, and the graphics really make their point. The bit about the apostrophe, for example, is just fantastic - you couldn't ever get it wrong again! The examples of students' writing are obviously real, and I was impressed because they included science essays as well as arts subjects like English and History. I would say it was an indispensable guide for anyone moving up to writing at university level and finding it a bit daunting.

If you have ever wondered about how to use an apostrophe this is the book for you (seriously the price is worth it for this section alone!). It is packed with tips and advice that will improve your writing and help you to communicate your ideas clearly and with style. I wish I had had this book when I was at university (some years ago now!) but I bought it for my son and he is has found it invaluable when writing his essays. Highly recommended. Buy it - you will not be disappointed.

I bought this book as I am starting to write my dissertation. I must say, it's a fantastic book for brushing up on punctuation and grammar skills. Very easy to read too - not too wordy and explains everything easily. Would highly recommend.
