One of the beginners

This book is useful if, and only if, you have never written down anything, and have no concept of how to write a paper. In that case you may be better off going to a style guide rather than this book. Aside from the fact that the author dictates in a condescending fashion, and only references to you as a student, not a reader or writer, but that he writes in such a language that one would expect to find in a small children's book. I found myself thoroughly unimpressed.
