Product Description

Review

'This is an excellent book. The writers have managed the difficult task of making a rather dry and unexciting topic interesting and approachable...I think Peck and Coyle have found exactly the right tone for a book of this kind.' - Geoffrey Finch, Senior Lecturer in Humanities, Anglia Polytechnic University, UK

Format: Paperback
Whilst aimed at students, this book will prove indispensable to anyone who wishes to improve their writing. All the standard topics are covered, such as punctuation and grammar. But, the authors also provide excellent advice on matters such as writing clearly, essay structure and common errors.

Most books of this type are dull and boring to read. 'Write it Right' is a cut above the rest; the authors have created a superbly useful book that will fuel the reader's desire to enhance their writing.

9 of 11 people found the following review helpful By G. Sin on 4 July 2009
Format: Paperback
The book is very easy to read, and is an excellent guide for students with English as their first language. Learn how to write clear sentences, and how to spot grammar mistakes.

The information is made easier to digest because it adopts a problem solving approach to grammar mistakes that are commonly made by students. Regarding the style of the book, the authors tend to repeat the same information throughout the book in hope that their message is reinforced. However, students who are conditioned to analysing concise texts might find this confusing because the repeated information is not always clearly indicated. As a note of caution, under the letter writing section, the convention of writing the date under the recipient's address is not common in England. I was taught to write the date after my own address, and this is further evidenced by my sister's education, which represents recent practice.

Overall, this is a good buy for any student, and it can be read within 2 days.

Format: Paperback
Argh! A book about grammar that confuses an adverb and an adjective in its three word title; couldn't they afford a proof reader? It is frankly unbelievable that no-one spotted this in the production process. How can you trust their other advice?

A guide to writing where the very title contains a grammatical error? I don't think I'll be bothering with this.
