Great thesis help,
This review is from: The Little Red Writing Book: 20 Powerful Principles of Structure, Style and Readability (Paperback)
Halfway through writing my PhD thesis, I bought this. I hoped that it would help with expository writing, and was not disappointed. The book primarily focuses not on grammar but on rhetorical structure, which is precisely what I wanted. It provides a list of simple principles, followed by grammatical rules for good style. Each principle is small and simple enough for the reader to understand quickly and easily. Exercises are given in some chapters, with sample answers in the back.
After absorbing some of the themes in the Little Red Writing Book, I was astounded at the number of faults in my earlier writing. The explicit principles it lists gave me confidence in revising my work and the results are a clear improvement upon the originals.
