Hale delves deeply into the use of verbs to transform your writing. To do so, she explores the nooks and crannies of (gulp) grammar to make the power of verbs clear to the reader. To a determined writer, this book is an essential read. I can’t call it a reference book, because it’s too interesting. Through quips, quotes, examples, and hard facts, Hale makes attractive, perhaps even intriguing, the use of the right verb at the right time in the proper format to energize your writing.
