From the author- "This book contains a number of ideas that I had to learn the hard way. In college, I developed a number of defensive techniques to simplify my work so that I could get it all done. Working four jobs and carrying 15-18 units per semester did not leave much time for studying. I had to have methods that saved time but still got the job done. Some of those ideas are in this book, modified over 25 years of teaching experience. You can learn them the easy way, by having them told to you and practicing them instead of having to work it all out by yourself. This book is good for about two years of instruction. Having taught these methods to a number of students over the years, I can say emphatically that the methods work, and the students became better writers. The presentation is clear and straightforward. There are examples of every format as well as some practice exercises for certain techniques. The seven-sentence outline is easy to learn and use and will fit many occasions, even for adults. Those who go on to college will be able to literally cut their work in half on their writing assignments. In fact, many of my former students actually earned money in college by putting these techniques to work by ghostwriting papers for other students. This book is a must if you want to improve your writing."
