Co-authored by two esteemed writers, "Writing Well," is a beautifully-written and thoroughly readable guide to the craft of writing prose. This concise, lively text covers all aspects of writing but is best known for its signature chapters on words, sentences, and paragraphs. Going beyond the basics of composition, the text teaches originality and elegance in writing encouraging students to develop their own written voice. Sample student papers including several works-in-progress - allow students to learn the writing process through the work of their peers. A brief handbook section rounds out the coverage.

Review: Writing WellUser Review - Craig - Goodreads
Hall has solid credentials as a writer, though I've never read anything of his but this text. I found it to be much better than the standard issue english composition textbook and as useful, actually more useful, than Strunk and White. Read full review
