What did you love best about On Writing Well Audio Collection?
Zinsser lays out focal points of good writing in a way that makes sense and is easily applied to writing. I have listened to and read many helpful books on the elements of writing, but this is a good place to start no matter what skill level you are at. Zinsser not only tells you what to do, he shows you. Here are a few other books I have found helpful.
Stein On Writing, by Sol Stein (if you are serious about writing, get this book, in audio or print).
The Writing Life, by Annie Dillard.
Three books by Roy Peter Clark:
Help! For Writers
The Glamour of Grammar
The Elements of Style (the original, unedited version by William Strunk).
Have you listened to any of William Zinsser’s other performances before? How does this one compare?
I have not, but he did well.
Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?
I could have, yes.
Any additional comments?
I think it was helpful.

What would have made On Writing Well Audio Collection better?
This book is listed as listed as, On Writting Well, but is actually, How to Write a Memoir also by William Zinsser.

Not much for your money with this title and no clear indication that it doesn't benefit fiction writers. Although pleasant enough to listen to, its messages are just common sense.

A great book full of advice and suggestions of other good writers and books. I really enjoyed it!!
Who is qualified to review this book? A scathing review would have to be damn well-written.
This book made me want to write. Zinsser's advice is easy to remember and use to improve your own writing. His only mistake is he says that this book isn't for fiction writers. All writers stand to get something out of this.
simple and easy to listen to.
A must read for those who wish to learn memoir writing.
