A poor addition to the Teach Yourself Series,
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Writing for the Web: Teach Yourself (Paperback)
Over the years Teach Yourself has proved itself to be a series you can trust. However, this latest addition is a dud.
Written jointly by `social entrepreneur' Robert Ashton and `Internet native' Jessica Juby (who `has worked for Robert since she left sixth form' and `now handles the running of his office') its well meaning tone is surely designed to be helpful but comes over as amateurish and patronising. It offers nothing new and, though published in 2013, is stale. Early on we are warned against `rambling' but the whole book is littered with longwinded explanations, unlikely examples and a string of "Robert says..." and "Jess says..." callout boxes that add nothing.
