Study Writing is a handy book for learners at the upper-intermediate and more advanced levels who need to develop proficiency in English writing for various purposes.Amajor positive point of this book is its recognition and acceptance of the cognitive and discourse aspects of writing which the authors see as problem-solving wherein a writer “faces two main tasks: (a) generating ideas in language and, (b) composing these ideas into a written structure adapted to the needs of the reader and the goals of the writer” (p.1). The book has a total of 12 units of which units 1-9 comprise Part I and introduce a range of writing types for practice. Part I introduces functional types of writing and explores i) the principles of writing (“About Writing”); ii) aspects of grammar that are essential for writing expository texts (“Using Grammar in Writing”) and iii) provides an opportunity to students to write extended texts under fewer constraints (“Consolidation”). In Part II (units 10-12), the authors explore the organization of texts in various ways (structuring, developing and creating texts) and provides a framework for handling complete expository texts.
