  saffuna: <focus> I really don't mean to be preaching, I'm no maestro.

I highly recommend getting "On Writing" by William Zinsser. It's an outstanding guide to writing nonfiction, emphasizing simplicity and clear communication to the reader.

Plus it really charges me up to write whenever I read from it.

"The Elements of Style" is also great, of course, but not as much fun.
