It is so easy to get stale in how we think about writing, so it’s helpful to have a new book with new ideas that make us think more deeply about the subject.
Compliments to my blog colleague Scott Fruehwald for his review of Steven Pinker’s book, The Sense of Style: The Thinking Person’s Guide to Writing in the 21st Century (here). The review appears in the Summer 2015 issue of Perspectives (here). I thought it important enough to retrieve it from the archives. With his interest in cognitive learning and his openness to new ways of thinking about teaching and writing, Scott was the perfect reviewer for this book.
