ON WRITING WELL, which grew out of a course that the author taught at Yale, has already become a classic in its field. Since the book's publication in 1976, William Zinsser has heard from hundreds of readers and has talked to many groups of writers, editors, and teachers. In this expanded Second Edition, he addresses the questions that were raised most often. He has written a new chapter called “Writing in Your Job,” elarged the chapter on sports writing to note the forces that have altered this once-innocent world, and tackled such troublesome new problems as jargon, sexism, and impersonality. Finally, he has written a new section on the lineage and techniques of American humor.
