  • The Academic Writer's Toolkit : A User's Manual

Berger's slim, user-friendly volume on academic writing is a gift to linguistically-stressed academics. Author of 60 published books, the author speaks to junior scholars and graduate students about the process and products of academic writing. He differentiates between business writing skills for memos, proposals, and reports, and the scholarly writing that occurs in journals and books. He has suggestions for getting the "turgid" out of turgid academic prose and offers suggestions on how to best structure various forms of documents for effective communication. Written in Berger's friendly, personal style, he shows by example that academics can write good, readable prose in a variety of genres.
