    Hey Prof Manuel! If you had to choose one of these (or if a certain someone at this current time could only afford one), which would you say is most beneficial towards learning how to communicate and formulate sentences and ideas through writing overall?

      Adam! It’s good to hear from you. Out of these 6 books, I’d start with Elements of Style. It’s cheap, short, and will be a great refresher for you since you are such a decent writer already.

    Nice list 🙂 I’d also add “On Writing Well” by William Zinsser, phenomenal book.

      Eeek! That book drove me crazy! I disagree with a lot of what Zinsser says.

        Wow, haven’t found someone who doesn’t like his style. What don’t you like about his writing philosophy?
