About the Author

'It is written fluently and engagingly. Explanations, broader discussions and directions never out-stay their welcome. The book keeps moving on. There is also a very good sense of how much information the reader can absorb in a sentence, a paragraph and a section.' - John Peck, former Reader at Cardiff University, UK

'I admire the general, well-written, refreshingly presented, focus on 'thinking'. The market is huge and ever-expanding. There are a number of volumes on 'how to write a dissertation', but not with a focus on clarity of language and building arguments.' - Jonathan Grix, Senior Lecturer in German Studies and Research Methodology, University of Birmingham
BRYAN GREETHAM is a Research Fellow at the University of Durham, UK, where he is currently engaged in research into moral thinking. He was educated at the universities of Kent and Sussex and holds a PhD in moral philosophy from the University of Newcastle, Australia. He is the author of How to Write Better Essays.

Have you ever wondered why some people can produce a well-structured, relevant essay written in a style that seems to glide across the page with the minimum of fuss? Do you think some people simply have these skills, and others don't, and that there is nothing we can do about it? This book just might change your mind. Addressing each landmark stage of the essay writing process, How to Write Better Essays teaches you how to…

  • analyse the question and break down difficult terms and concepts
  • brainstorm effectively and generate your own ideas
  • evaluate and criticise arguments
  • express your thoughts coherently and develop your own style of writing
  • plan and structure your essay from introduction to conclusion
… and along the way, practical techniques show how to analyse, criticise, discuss and evaluate material, improve your style, revise your final draft and avoid plagiarism.

The third edition of this bestselling book includes new chapters on critical thinking, tackling reflective writing assignments, and how to create and analyse concepts. It also features a new companion website providing annotated essays to illustrate the successful outcome of the methods you learn in the book, exercises to develop critical thinking skills, and additional examples of how to analyse concepts.

For every student who needs to write essays, from whatever discipline, this book is a constant source of the help and inspiration you need to tackle your essays with confidence.
