On writing well an informal guide to writing nonfiction

This is a book for people who want to learn to write. It's also a book for people in every kind of job who have to do some writing just to get through the day ... Writing isn't a skill that some people are born with and others aren't, like a gift for art or music. Writing is thinking on paper, or talking to someone on paper ... This book grew out of a course in nonfiction writing that [the author] taught at Yale ... [He] wanted to try to help college students to write about the world they were living in ... [His] purpose in [the book] is not to teach good nonfiction, or good journalism, but to teach good English that can be put to those uses, or to any uses.-Introd.
