The Sense of Style: The Thinking Person's Guide to Writing in the 21st Century

The English language is a powerful tool if one knows how to use it well. Steven Pinker, professor, public intellectual, and author of countless books and articles, certainly possess that skill. But in The Sense of Style he doesn’t only apply it beautifully, he also relishes in dissecting what exactly makes for a well-structured argument and a text than anyone would want to read.

Pinkers’ primary target group are academics, but his advice is useful for anyone who wants to write more clearly—and beautifully.
