      Comments about Australian Handbook For Writers and Editors:

      When the lecturer doesn't make sense and you are having trouble telling the head from the tail, this is the book for you. Great for visual readers as the sentences are spaced apart to make it an easier read. Worksheet examples are easy to understand and main explanations are to the point. My friends and I have been sharing this one around as we do our teaching course.

        The best thing is that it's written for Aussie writers. It's presented in a big, simple format that makes it easy to leaf through and search for examples. It can be used by beginners or professional writers.
