Overview

Style: The Basics of Clarity and Grace reflectsthe wisdom and clear authorial voice of Williams’ best-selling book, Style: Lessons in Clarity and Grace, while streamlining every chapter to create a very brief, yet powerfully direct guide to writing with style.

The concise clarity of this book makes it a handy reference for anyone interested in good writing—as well as a quick and ideal guide for freshman composition courses, writing courses across the disciplines, and as a supporting text in courses that require clear and direct writing.

The text features principles of effective prose written in Williams’ hallmark conversational style, offering reason-based principles, rather than hard and fast rules, for successful, effective writing.
