What makes great writing great writing is not spelling or grammar or syntax, but honesty. Not the careless honesty of our emotions, but the intellectual honesty that results from careful thoughts combined with a firm insistence that we write only true things. The honest writer always seeks to avoid deception, always believes writing the truth is more important than proving a point. Honesty in the Use of Words by Martin Naparsteck adds a new dimension to such classic writing advice as William Strunk and E.B. Whites The Elements of Style and George Orwells Politics and the English Language.
