"Demystifies essays" - by Anony Mouse
I haven't had to go through the whole book yet as I'm not that far along with my essay writing however I feel I've read enough to warrant writing a review. As a bit of background, I haven't had any formal education since GCSE's over 12 years ago and I'm just beginning an OU course in humanities.

So far I'm very impressed overall with the book. I've not had to write an essay before and I feel the book has demystified the process of writing an essay by explaining clearly what an essay is/isn't and how to write one. It's full of easy tips to follow and I feel has helped me a lot.

The only drawback I would say the book has is that it in the beginning it reassures the reader a lot that the reader can do well in their undergraduate degree ... full review

"Definitely worth it" - by Merwe
I got the book today and I've only read about 50 pages.
Those 50 pages have actually managed to help me understand what I'm suppose to do.
If you're a pro-essay writer you won't need this but if you're not and need guidance this is a good book for you =)

"Genuinely Impressed..." - by History Lecturer
As a lecturer at a red brick English university, I must say that I'm genuinely impressed with this little discovery. One of my students asked me to have a look at it to make sure that the essay writing principles it outlines were acceptable.

At first I was sceptical of the title. I would never recommend a student attempts to write an essay in 24 hours (although I'm aware that it is done by some of my students - sometimes to an exceptionally high standard!) but, having said that, the content of this book really, really impressed me.

The guidelines it sets forward - if taken on board - will certainly help students achieve first class marks. The vast majority of undergraduate and graduate marking that I do is spent penalising basic errors of poor structure and failures to answer the set question with sufficient focus ... full review

"Excellent to dip into throughout a course" - by Amazon Customer
I'm doing a psychology course with the OU and this is one of the recommended books for DSE212.
It's very useful to get your hands on before starting your course so you can skim read most of it. It's not important that you remember everything in it, you just need to know where to find useful bits of info later in the course.
It's an excellent resource.

"Best one so far!" - by Miss K Rattu
I had to pleasure of attending Vlad's seminar his gave at my university (aston) where he got his first class degree and a number of works published as an undergraduate. i have to say that in person he is very approachable, friendly and dedicated to his work. This made me want to read his book even more, especially if he has approached the book in the same way he did in his seminar. Unlike others i have read which are dense, to 'wordy' and waffle, this book is the exact opposite. It is clear, concise and tells you everything you need to know in short sentences that do not not go on forever! he offers his advice as a student, how he got his first, and what he expects as a reader and in his profession of helping others write. Which is what you need when writing, its not just ... full review

"Essay writing is the key to success." - by Dr. P. Jepson
In my view the key to success in examinations is communication with the examiner. In the vast majority of subject areas that is through essay writing. This book by Nigel Warburton is very good at explaining the basics of essay writing. It is a vital resource for AS/A2 Level students and others.

"Read the official synopsis and make sure this is what you want." - by Mr. J. H. Wheeler (Cheshire, England)
The synopsis for this book does the best job...for an amateur to review it and the writer is a study in arrogance. Want to write? Think it's a doddle? Read this first--the author knew a thing or two about the topic.

"well worth the money" - by Jo (United States)
Easy to read, bite size version, clear and to the point. Recommended for anybody undertaking an essay writing course. For a more thorough insight though I prefer writing essays for dummies.

"Brilliantly concise and extremely useful" - by Karen
Just got this one and I know it is going to be one of THE best study investments I will make for studying my degree. It gives lots of obvious common sense pointers, but also clarifies what your tutor will be looking for. The bit about what students think is required versus what tutors require was very illuminating in itself. A bargain, which will help me all the way through University.

"Bryson on autopilot is still better than most" - by merri45 (UK)
Bryson on average form - which is to say still informative, entertaining and funnier than most.

There's a bit of duplication of material from "Notes From A Small Island" and even a couple of his other books. He might have taken the trouble to re-read the former before writing this one (he says that, at 63, his memory isn't what it was; he's not kidding) - several observations are repeated, sometimes almost word for word, and there's a whole argument with a McDonald's employee repeated almost verbatim. (He makes reference to an editor, but what he does for his money isn't clear). His usual rich-man-bitches-about-paying-any-money-for-anything schtick isn't as funny as he (presumably) thinks, just annoying. In fact he seems to be moving into the stage of life where grumpiness becomes one's default setting; where everything old is good and everything new bad and all contemporary culture is dismissed as ... full review
