"...A welcome addition to the library of helpful reference material for written English...It is astounding that so many college graduates have completed their courses of study without having been exposed to the fundamentals of academic essay writing. Schaum's Quick Guide to Writing Great Essays manages to give serious exposure to those fundamentals in a way that is effective, extensive and easy to swallow."­­James A. Thomas, Dean of Admissions, Yale Law School

Kishlansky, Frank B. Baird Jr. Professor of English and European History, Harvard University
