Acutely sensitive to the anxieties that plague social science writers, Becker does a brilliant job of speaking to the moral and emotional problems at the root of bad writing. He shows students (and post-graduates) what they are doing wrong in their attempts to write and offers eminently useful suggestions about what they should be doing instead.
