Comments on the first edition:

 "With concision and wit, Harvey shows college students how to write papers that are clear, cogent—and also stylish."
     —James Miller, Editor, Dædalus


 "Even the most sophisticated writer could benefit from this work, which nevertheless aims at the broad audience of students trying to learn, step by step, how to write. Interestingly, this is more than a 'how to' book. The author's aim, clearly stated, is to deflate pompous language and to instill the habit of plain language and clear thinking. He manages to do so in such a way that his own writing embodies the clarity (and grace) that he helps his reader to achieve. Other approaches might do as well. But it is hard to imagine doing a better job at teaching good writing."
     —Peter A. Y. Gunter, University of North Texas


 "Simply the best guide to clear and effective writing since Strunk and White. Indispensable for students—and for their teachers . . . ."
     —Terry Nardin, Department of Political Science, University of Wisconsin-Milwaukee

 
"Highly recommended."
     —P. Finley, Choice*
