Summary
"Have you ever wondered why some people can produce a well-structured, relevant essay written in a style that seems to glide across the page with the minimum of fuss? Do you think some people simply have these skills, and others don't, and that there is nothing we can do about it? This book just might change your mind." "This second edition features a unique troubleshooting section allowing you easily to locate solutions to your writing problems, additional chapters on paragraphs and style and end of chapter summaries. In short, this book is the constant source of assistance and inspiration you need to tackle your essays with confidence."--BOOK JACKET
