A great! A good book... na! not either...This is the Nec Plus Ultra for writing
Writing isn't just dopping words or doing a time to time jurk line... Writing is a state of mind, a feeling that has to be part of yourself and Mr. Twain, of all is the best to teach how.
Even if you hate teaching books - this one isn't one... its' a friend to hang on!

HASH(0x9b63babc) out of 5 stars This Author has a True Talent for Twain! 26 Jan. 2015
By Art Mawkin - Published on
Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
For any Mark Twain fan, any student of Clemens' life and times, for any writer--- This book will stay in your library forever and you might go to it time and time again - and always learn more, think more, and ponder longer about the genius writing of Clemens and all we can learn from him. Author Mark Dawidziak offers valuable lessons in Mark Twain in this concise book; he took the time to 'write it short' - to make every word count and all Twain fans will recognize the talent in the author's economy and presentation. Thank you for a wonderful book Mr. Mark Dawidziak. This book is a 'keeper' and will stay in my library.
HASH(0x9b63b9c0) out of 5 stars Simply put--Tremendous! 19 Nov. 2013
By Larry L. Booker - Published on
Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
How can anyone be a lover of literature--especially American literature, and not stand in a kind of awe of Mark Twain's abilities? Simply put, he mastered not only the English language, but all forms of the American dialect and knew how to 'get it across' the page and into the heart of the reader. While the world has produced many, many truly great authors... no one has done it quite like Twain--no one. Therefore, this compilation is, simply put, tremendous!

HASH(0x9b981738) out of 5 stars Advertised as New - Not New 8 Mar. 2013
By T. Moore - Published on
Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
While the book is in good condition, it is not 'new,' as advertised. It has been written in and multiple pages turned back. Books advertised as new, should be new.
