Would you try another book from The Great Courses and/or Professor Jennifer Cognard-Black?
I have and will continue to order The Great Courses books. Would not try another from Jennifer Cognard-Black.
What was most disappointing about The Great Courses’s story?
The author to me seems pretentious and condescending. Her views and thoughts about things outside of writing are quite ignorant and irritating and best left out of this book.

This book is for someone who writes personal essays, in a journal, or possible wants to write a biography. If this is your focus, it is a good book.
This book will not help with professional writing, grammar, or style.

I am a writer - albeit untrained bar years of experience - by trade. I am always keen to learn more and see where I can 'cross pollinate ' information. This Great Course was so broad but uniquely informative that not only did I find I could take much with me on my own journey but I found a new appreciation for Essays.
Down to earth, well explained, with great examples, it made both listening and learning an effortless pleasure.

Just could not warm up to this. lots of words but not much of it seemed to be about actually writing an essay. Gave up on it early. Maybe there's more pertinent teaching later on but I lost the will to find out.
