Simplicity is Zinssers mantra: he preaches a stripped-down writing style, strong and clear. He has no patience for excess (most use of adjectives and adverbs, he writes, just adds clutter) or tired phraseology (for instance, hed like to outlaw all leads involving those future archaeologists most often found stumbl[ing] upon the remains of our civilization).

He recommends that all writers of nonfiction read their work aloud (dont commit something to paper that you wouldnt actually say) and write under the assumption that the reader knows nothing (not to be confused with assuming the readers an idiot).

In addition to the chapters on the expected--usage, audience, interviews, leads--Zinsser also focuses on such trouble spots as science and technical writing, business writing, sports, and humor.
