I received this English Text book today and I was very pleased with it. There is a chapter about Writing and Thinking and Composition (Which consists of writing and revising sentences). There is even a section on writing fictional stories and poems, research, public speaking, letter writing, and completing forms.
When I ordered this book, I did not expect some of the content included in the book, like the section on writing poems. I originally was buying this book with the need for the section on the Grammar.
I recommend this book to anyone looking to better their writing skills. It contains a lot of information, information most Independent Authors are looking for.
With this book there is no real need for any other book on writing, besides you friendly dictionary.
Given 5 out of 5 stars *****

I can’t say The Prodigy Project is another Clive Cussler, but it was an overall good read.
A spy novel for the family, written by a family is more classified in a category with Spy Kids. This book was mediocre suspenseful and contained some good action. It does have some humorous parts to break up some of the suspense. Imagine taking a family of 9 children on a spy mission without them knowing. I am not sure if this is the authors debut novel, but if it is, I think he will be able to turn out some really good stories. I would recommend this book to anyone who likes a good family spy novel.
I give this book 4 out of 5 stars ****
