Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

This easy-to-use guide is the result of Barry Kalb's work with hundreds of Chinese journalism students from Hong Kong, Mainland China, Taiwan, and Southeast Asia. You Can Write Better English corrects common problems native Chinese speakers encounter when trying to write English.

Barry Kalb teaches reporting and news writing at the University of Hong Kong and has been a CBS News correspondent in Hong Kong and Time Magazine Eastern Europe bureau chief.

"This little book is a delight, offering a seasoned writer's advice backed up with examples from many years in the classroom with native speakers of Chinese. By writing down his wisdom with a clear, authoritative voice, Barry Kalb has earned a place on the shelf beside Fowler, Orwell and Strunk and White." — Ford Burkhart, former New York Times and AP foreign desk editor
