Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

"Write to the Point" is the best available guide to effective writing of non-fiction. "Have something to say, and say what you mean to say as simply as you can." Those are Bill Stott's most important points, and for all those readers who know that this simple advice may be difficult to follow, he offers encouragement on such topics as: how to find something to say; the basics of organization, how to avoid sexist language; how much is enough; plagiarism; and basic grammar.

Review:

"Super-enriched how-to book... designed to get the beginner or the pro... past the struggles of writing to the rewards of sharing something useful." Christian Science Monitor

Book News Annotation:

A simple and witty guide for those with no computer experience, providing the information needed to buy and utilize a computer system designed for the unique requirements of the writer's craft. A guide to the effective writing of non-fiction, for both novices and veterans. Stott offers advice and encouragement on such topics as: how to find something to say, basic grammar, the basics of organization, transitions, plagiarism, quoting, proofreading, and how to avoid sexist language.
