This book incorporates a unique framework through which students in social science programmes can make sense of the academic expectations surrounding reading and writing in their courses. Explained in a clear and logical manner, this framework is strongly linked to the learning needs of the student-the more I read, the more I want to try it.-- Mark Gillespie
This book provides a readable guide to structuring academic writing with the benefit of annotated reading. It is written with humour and a "pulling no punches" style.

This is an excellent book that provides clear advice not only on how to read, but also how to write academically and will be useful to undergraduate and masters students alike. The codes and the way that information is presented is reader friendly - the book can be used as a reference book or read cover to cover. I suspect for many people it will be both. -- Pete Allison
