Giveaway Opportunity: GOOD PROSE by Tracy Kidder and Richard Todd

Wednesday, September 4th, 2013

Kidder_Good ProseIt’s that time of year again- school starts! Good Prose is a must have whether you are going back to school yourself, your kids are, or if you just need some motivation to keep up with your writing. (We are personally feeling a little nostalgic for a brand new backpack and a peanut butter and jelly sandwich!)

Good Prose—like Strunk and White’s The Elements of Style—is a succinct, authoritative, and entertaining arbiter of standards in contemporary writing, offering guidance for the professional writer and the beginner alike. This wise and useful book is the perfect companion for anyone who loves to read good books and longs to write one. Tracy Kidder is also the author of Mountains Beyond Mountains and My Detachment.

“You are in such good company—congenial, ironic, a bit old-school—that you’re happy to follow [Kidder and Todd] where they lead you.”—The Wall Street Journal
