The case format establishes a narrative arc to each chapter to engage students in the chapter contents. Real student experiences give the text credibility and ground the advice about writing in real contexts. The focus on writing processes, advanced academic genres, and revision make this book an excellent choice for undergraduates and masters students across the disciplines.
It helps learners contemplate the academic challenges they face and apply that learning also to real life, giving them a feeling of achievement for only addressing the problem, but also becoming able to overcome it. It is also helpful in encouraging individuals to seek support when it comes to academic assignments.
This book is an excellent source for those returning to education who need to produce high quality academic work.

At first glance I thought this appeared a little text-heavy; however, once I started reading, I realised that this was well-supported by the organisation of the book. Naturally, writing skills books need to include a lot of text, and making them engaging and interesting isn't easy... If there was a revised version, I would recommend looking at ways of breaking up the text a little more to avoid that first-glance impression.
This book is a must read for nursing students who have not written essays for a period of time. There is quite a jump in learning how to master academic writing and this book helps that transition.
