Legendary editor (THE GUARDIAN, THE SUNDAY TIMES) Harold Evans examines the ways writers can communicate their ideas with greater clarity and purpose in this age of rapid digital communication with its tendency toward lesser precision in writing. Narrator Greg Tremblay has a pleasant, down-to-earth narration style, but, ironically, the topic of clear writing presents some degree of difficulty in the audio format. With engaging vocal variation, Tremblay communicates the book's many examples of poor writing, along with Evans's revisions. Though the examples are comprehensible to the listener to some extent, in the print format the eye could better compare the placement of modifiers and other such details. Overall, Tremblay adequately communicates the tenets of good writing, but this work may be more easily digested in print. S.E.G. © AudioFile 2017, Portland, Maine [Published: JUNE 2017]
