    1. Jeff

      For all intents and purposes, The Oxford Essential Guide to Writing (Essential Resource Library) is a reference book that is meant to be read. That is, however assuming that the areas of short non-fiction are the areas you're writing about. The book's main purpose is obviously to inform the reader, not to entertain. That being said, there is a significant effort to lighten the tone and move away from the drudgery of constant grammar and style tips. What it all boils down to is that this is a fai [...]

      This book covers many aspects of writing. However, you need to remember to not read this book in a one shot, because, it can be really boring after first chapters! Try to read the first chapters and read back and forth later on, when you need it.

    3. Aditya Mookerjee

      Very useful book, to develop skills in writing. I have learnt how to begin, continue and end a piece of writing. The book is not the easiest to understand, in the sense, that I do not use the type of English encountered in the book, nor have I encountered it commonly in other books.I found very instructive, how to link more than one paragraph, using deliberate means. I do the exercises faithfully, which are found in the end of the chapters. I am still in the beginnings of the book.

      OK so now you know, but don't laugh at me! I've suddenly have readers on my blog, and I desperately need a brush-up on my writing skills. The guide is very good so far, but it doesn't help with my typos or misspellings!

    5. Lynne

      Surprisingly motivational for optional reading for a copyediting class. I actually went ahead and read the entire thing and I think, if I actually take the time to look back at it, it might help me with my own writing.

    6. Juan Ignacio Gelos

      This essential resource helps all writers organize, shape, and complete their work while expressing their ideas creatively and clearly. Rules of style and technique are covered, with examples of expert prose from the masters. An Appendix covers punctuation and grammar.

    7. Zuzana

      I read all the chunks that were assigned in my copyediting class. I don't enjoy writing in the least, so this wasn't my favorite book, but I can see how it would be very helpful for actual writers. For copyeditors, it has good FYI bits.

    8. Natalie

      I used this text for my Copy Editing II class, and was initially annoyed that it is more of a resource for writers than editors. I quickly found it indispensable, though, since it taught me to tear apart and rebuild sentences and to defend my work in doing so.
