Compose Yourself is the ideal reference work for anyone who wants to express their thoughts in the clearest and most effective way for any audience - whether in essays, journalism, letters or work reports. Inaccurate or poorly expressed writing can create a detrimental impression on the reader, but it is easy to avoid such problems by thinking logically about what you want to say before starting to write. Packed with examples of poor usage from sources such as magazines and newspapers, this commonsense guide demonstrates the best ways of producing confident and persuasive English.
Harry Blamires is the author of The Penguin Guide to Plain English and numerous other books, including works on theology, literary history and criticism.
