Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0595349439, Paperback)

I Hate Writing may be the only "page-turner" textbook out there. J.M. Bohannon gives her readers invaluable writing advice, using an uplifting, modern voice tinged with humor. She takes her readers through the stages of writing a paper, giving detailed advice on how to find topics, turn ideas into words, and organize those words into coherent paragraphs with seemless transitions. She shows her readers how to revise their own work and through her "Critical Q's" teaches them to become critical readers. She also explains how to find outside sources and how to include those sources in a paper. "Too many students approach writing at the university level as a scientist approaches a volatile experiment: with protective suit, goggles, gloves, and forceps. They struggle to write without contaminating that writing with anything resembling personality. Don't let that student be you. Your unique voice should blast through your writing, letting everyone know there's a person behind your words."
