This a useful manual for writing of all types. The guide to research in an appendix is sensible. The “watchlist” is a good guide to avoiding Pentagonese. The author of this text had a sense of humor.
One unusual feature of the text is that the manual contains instructions for writing a staff study and a sample of a model staff study.
