A quick read, How to Write Clearly gets to the root of the matter. This common-sense approach will help you learn to link sentences, follow the story thread, solve most comma problems, write with verbs, and other techniques. No drills or assignments are included, rather, the historical roots of the old English (versus Latin-driven English) system are explained so you can go to 'The Meaning Approach.' Focusing on good writing before technical grammar, examples are presented through 'thinking and clear writing, not on rigid rules and grammar.' 83 pages, softcover.
