Stanek offers unique insight into the process of writing to meet the commitments of life, business, and college. Although this is far from a "definitive" writer's guideline, this book shines in giving a unique perspective on the processes of writing, tapping into creativity, improving ideas, and completing assignments that involve writing from simple essays, reports, presentations to more complicated writing like a thesis or a novel, the book covers it all.
As a college sophmore, I am grateful for a brief glimpse into the world of a professional writer as well as the many many insights Stanek shares are taken from his own many years experience as a professional writer. He shares the proven techniques he's used to get writing done to the beat of deadlines from bosses, professors, and others. I gained confidence and am working to change many bad habits. I am still in awe at what he has accomplished in his professional writing career.

Effective Writing for Business, College, and Life.
This book is trying to be all things to all readers, and in doing so is an injustice to all. I found the book to have a scope that is unbelievably wide and I happened to find a few items of interest in the book,This book is trying to be all things to all readers, and in doing so is an injustice to all. I found the book to have a scope that is unbelievably wide and I happened to find a few items of interest in the book, but mostly it was a reiteration of information I have come across in the past. I believe this book would be aimed at the High School level. I believe this book should be aimed at the High School level.
