Summary

Paula LaRocque's new book is the result of a lifetime spent as a journalist and writing educator.

The Book on Writing: The Ultimate Guide to Writing Well contains 25 chapters in three sections. The first section spells out a dozen essential guidelines to good writing, from the importance of short sentences to the value of using a conversational tone. Section Two teaches the reader how to tell a story -- how to build suspense, how to effectively describe things, how to use literary devices. Section Three is a concise handbook on writing mechanics, such as grammar, usage, punctuation and style.

Each section is loaded with illustrative examples of great non-fiction writing, and LaRocque's gentle humor makes reading a pleasure. The Book on Writing is LaRocque's gift to the writing world -- it is destined to become a classic.
