Good for Non Fiction Writers

User Review  - mlsatterfield -

I bought this book at the urging of another writer and am glad I did. It is full of useful information and covers topics from usage and style to writing travel sports memoirs and more. It was well worth the cost and I would recommend it to non fiction writers in all areas. Read full review

There are three primary books on writing. "Writing with Style" by Trimble, "Elements of Style" by Strunk and White, and "On Writing Well" by Zinsser. In my opinion "On Writing Well" is the inferior of the three. He violates his own suggestions, he's a fairly self-satisfied writer, and perhaps with little reason. I would suggest "Writing with Style" by John Trimble.

User Review  - Whitney - Goodreads

The best thing about reading books about writing is that they're well written (at least one would hope). I thoroughly enjoyed reading this, and it has helped my writing immensely. Read full review
