Review: Writing with Style: Conversations on the Art of Writing

User Review  - Audrey - Goodreads

Not so much a nuts-and-bolts kind of book, but more conversations about writing itself: how to go about writing. There are also some tips about usage, punctuation and so forth, but mostly it gives ideas about the writing process. Read full review

Review: Writing with Style: Conversations on the Art of Writing

User Review  - Ryan Trimble - Goodreads

Having read a handful of books on writing, this is my favorite. Trimble's style is so engaging and enjoyable and witty. He simultaneously explains stylistic concepts while demonstrating them. Non-writers would even enjoy this book; it's that well-written. Read full review
