I agree with Taylor. This book was horrible and did not improve my writing skills. It was a complete waste of time. The author is boring and the questions and assignments at the end of each chapter are time-consuming and useless.

I have been required to read this book for my freshman honors english class and i have been bored out of my skull all through this class peroid! I never imagined that it was possible to write a book this bad! the only good use for this book is to start a good campfire! PLEASE DONT WASTE YOUR MONEY ON THIS TERRIBLE BOOK! i can sum up this book in 1 sentence for you so that you dont pay the $7.00 for it! Passive voice is very bad and never ever use the word "there". ok i have just saved you $7.00! This is the WORST book i have ever read but it could be used as a great torture device!
