    Destined to take its place next to Strunk and White's The Elements of Style as an essential and timeless how-to guide! A brief, elegant primer on how to write vivid, interesting written material. You'll enjoy the continuing narrative of the lives of the would-be young professional Jeffrey and his successful professional sister Molly.

    You’ll discover:

    • how to use introductory and trailing modifiers; proper use of the semicolon, colon, and dash; and how to use a noun clause effectively
    • how to spice up prose by varying sentence length
    • how to use "like" or "unlike" and the right way to use repetition to focus concepts
    • how you can build great paragraphs through the use of compelling sentences.

    In addition, you’ll find hundreds of examples of how to incorporate these lessons, including many taken from current newspapers and magazines, as well as many examples of how NOT to write.
