This new edition has been revised throughout and contains many new exercises, updated examples, a new section on research proposals, and wider disciplinary coverage. The organization of the book has also been revised to better fit with the timeline of most teaching terms. An Introduction is one of those rare guides that knows this, and helps students help themselves.

In fact it was the first book that did this for me. If you are an undergraduate who wants to improve your writing of essays, or a graduate student writing a thesis, this book is a good one to own, to refer to, and to give you a sense of how to approach your writing.

The book applies across the disciplines, but I would suggest it is most suitable to those in the social sciences. Overall, I would not hesitate this book to acadmeic who is faced with writing essays or theses for University or Research.
