Personal Growth • 1 hr. • Abridged • © 1976

Zinsser's classic belongs on every writer's shelf. It's full of practical, no-frills advice on the basics of writing nonfiction: clarity, simplicity, brevity and humanity. Zinsser also offers unique observations: "An experienced writer learns how to crank up his confidence and self-esteem when he sits down to write." The author's easy-going delivery and warm voice are confidence-building, as well. The discussion is crystal clear and easy to follow as transitional statements carefully lead the listener from one section to the next. Most of all, the tape exudes Zinsser's generosity of spirit, which is sure to inspire any would-be writer. E.K.D. ©AudioFile, Portland, Maine [Published: DEC 95]
