"Style: The Basics of Clarity and Grace "reflects the wisdom and clear authorial voice of Williams best-selling book, "Style: Ten Lessons in Clarity and Grace, " while streamlining every chapter to create a very brief, yet powerfully direct guide to writing with style. The brevity and clarity of this book make it a quick and ideal read for freshman composition courses, as well as for writing courses across the disciplines. "Style: The Basics of Clarity and Grace" covers the elemental principles of writing that will help students diagnose their prose quickly and revise it effectively. The ten lessons feature principles of effective prose written in William's hallmark conversational style, offering reason-based approaches, rather than hard and fast rules, for successful, effective writing.
