DElliott ★★★★★

After reading comments by others, I must add that the best part of “Write Like A Pro” is the editing and proofreading sections. We can all write; but it’s hard to clean up our own writing. Many thanks to Bookboon for sharing this knowledge with the World!

B. Mae West, Creative Communities ★★★★★

Write Like A Pro is a gem! Not only does it provide clear and helpful tips, the book is well-organized and contains some amazing links to other writing tools. I used it to guide my first creative essay which was well-received by friends and critics. Dr. Riley has produced an ebook that every person who has to write for school, college, business or government should have at their fingertips.

I thought this was a highly resourceful ebook, laid out succinctly and helpfully. Was so ideal for me as I began to launch myself into writing my own books. I especially liked the proof-reading element, which has been incredibly helpful. Thanks so much for a clear, informative and meaningful learning tool.
