KIRKUS REVIEW

The author of The Art of Plain Talk, The Art of Readable Writing, submits a system by which you can determine the reading ease and the human interest values of your writing. This is based on a breakdown of words, sentences, syllables and ""personal"" words, and after analyzing your work- you can of course improve it by using this formula. Examples from Dickens, Emerson, Veblen, etc. illustrate the process and a closing chapter shows the many ways in which this can be applied... Predetermined for the beginning writer.
