Books on writing

Academic writing is often a real challenge for both undergraduate and graduate students. It is an absolutely necessary skill.

Here are some useful books,

Strunk & White, The Elements of Style is probably the best known.

Joseph M. Williams’ Style: The Basics of Clarity and Grace is also very good.

A personal favorite is Thomas & Turner, Clear and Simple as the Truth: Writing Classic Prose.
