Armed with our laptops and our PCs, we're the writing-est generation ever, cranking out e-mail, Web pages, and blogs, not to mention office memos, faxes, reports, newsletters, school papers, even memoirs and novels. But many of us were never taught how to write a sentence that makes sense, how to make sure our words do justice to our ideas. The result? Never have so many written so much so badly. O'Conner comes to the rescue with a practical and witty guide to the elements of good writing--From publisher description.
