This bestselling brief supplementary text is for any course where students write. A storehouse of practical writing tips—written in a lively, conversational style. Provides new insight into: how to generate interesting ideas and get them down on paper; how to write a critical analysis; how to write a crisp opener; how to invigorate a banal style; how to punctuate with confidence; how to handle various conventions—and much more. Students learn to develop a “writer's sense”: the book demonstrates that writing is really applied psychology since it is essentially the art of creating desired effects. Provides an explanation of what effects are desirable and how to create them. An exceptional book that works successfully on several levels simultaneously. Readily accessible to college freshman, yet sophisticated enough to delight a senior English Honors class. Unusually flexible, the book can function equally well as both a self-teaching text (in literature courses, etc.) and a companion text (in composition and journalism courses).

An advocate submits a brief to a court or tribunal to persuade it to decide the cause or matter in favor of the advocates client or position. The key word is persuade. Too often, advocates forget this and write to please themselves. They write to themselves instead of to the court. They write in chest-thumping prose and style. Advocates will do well to keep in mind that in advocacy, persuasion is all that matters. This book teaches persuasive written advocacy. It shows advocatesof all ranks, in all jurisdictions, in all proceedings, before all courts or tribunalshow to prepare and present winning and winsome arguments. Because of its emphasis on winning, the books pedagogy blends law, linguistics, logic, psychology, rhetoric, and semantics.
