Review of 1st Edition The book's title is absolutely accurate in describing how the authors give the most practical and clear advice on all of the problematic aspects of reading for meaning, developing analytic and coherent thinking and writing in coursework. This book will be invaluable for any student and it would be sad if most are too busy writing essays and undertaking examinations to read it. Nursing Times Review of this edition I felt this was a real back to basics text in parts that went over some rules of thumb that even I'd forgotten about. I felt also that part 3 entered the domain of some of the more technical arguments when discussing thought processes. The sub-heading 'Criticizing others is not a blood sport' resonated oh so true. A thoroughly worthwhile and enjoyable text. John Carson, Senior Lecturer, Northumbria University. This guide is a must for all students who find writing essays difficult. It will enable them to develop essential skills in reading, writing and reasoning. The authors are both very experienced in helping students to develop proficiency in these areas. Written in plain language, the book encourages the development of key skills in reading and evaluating texts, in the use of a clear and effective writing style and in cogent argument. The practical advice, examples and exercises are invaluable for all students who would like to become better readers, writers and reasoners.
