The ability to paint a vision with words, to inspire and inform, to tell a story, has long been regarded as the most powerful and coveted skill. Presidents, generals, doctors, lawyers, authors and CEOs know the power of words and they know how to wield them. Writing is the most useful skill we have but it is not something you can master overnight. It requires hard work and books like this.

But how can this book help you improve your writing? It contains 600 sentence-based activities, organised under 30 beautifully illustrated themes and settings. Each activity will teach the proper usage of and context behind 600 curated, descriptive verbs, using the active recall method, intentionally adhering to "less is more" and providing clues to maximise long-term memory. Our approach makes using this book far more effective than any alternative.
