"Write to the Point" is the best available guide to the effective writing of non-fiction. "Have something to say, and say what you mean to say as simply as you can." Those are Bill Stott's most important points, and for all those readers who know that this simple advice may be difficult to follow, he offers encouragement on such topics as: how to find something to say, basic grammar, the basics of organization, transitions, plagiarism, quoting, proofreading, and how to avoid sexist language.
