In this new edition, author Theodore Cheney offers 39 targeted ways you can improve your writing, including how to: create smooth transitions between paragraphs; correct the invisible faults of inconsistency, incoherence, and imbalance; overcome problems of shifting point of view and style; and express your ideas clearly by trimming away weak or extra words."
