Less Than Words Can Say
by Richard Mitchell
Publisher: Little, Brown 1979
Number of pages: 224
Mitchell takes examples of bad writing and rips them to shreds. While some would think these mistakes don't really matter, Mitchell insists that they do, because they are revelations about the mind that wrote them. Thus examples of bad writing that come from "educators" are given special attention; if educators have twisted minds, what can we expect to have happen to their charges?

This book will inspire you to write, even if you have only a few minutes to spare. Drawing on a mix of disciplines, including psychology, art, linguistics, and advertising, each chapter offers you a discussion, followed by a five-minute exercise.

A book for would-be authors. No one can teach authors how or what to write; but sometimes it is possible to help the beginners to an understanding of what it is better not to write. For the rest I hope the book explains itself.
by Charles Bazerman - Parlor Press
Written for the experienced writer with substantial skills, who now would think in more fundamental terms about what they want to accomplish, what form the texts might take, how to develop specific contents, and how to arrange the work of writing.

This little book is one which so well explains itself that no introductory word is needed; and I only venture to intrude a sentence or two here with a view to explain the style in which I have conveyed my ideas. I desired to be plain and practical.
