Simple & Direct
by Jeremy at 8:54 am EDT, May 20, 2004

Rare is the book that causes one to consider -- ponder? appraise? examine? inspect? contemplate? -- one's every word.

Simple & Direct, a classic text on the craft of writing by the educator Jacques Barzun, does so -- with style.

Bookshelf already full, you say? Pick up your broom, clear away the dust, and consider making that "Harry" disappear.

If the truth is told, the youth can grow
Then learn to survive until they gain control
Nobody says you have to be gangstas, hoes
Read more, learn more, change the globe
