Introducing a fresh, updated edition of a Pitkin best seller. This great city has almost 40 colleges, each a part of the other, tightly interwoven. You’ll discover cobbled streets, looking much as they did hundreds of years ago, old wooden doors that open to offer enticing glimpses of mown lawns, neat quadrangles and ancient staircases leading into the heart of the colleges. Gaze skywards and see great bell towers, carved figures and slim spires piercing the clouds. The ancient beauty is enlivened by all the charms of a modern city – theatres, galleries, bookshops, cafés, pubs and restaurants. Today’s tourists can enjoy these 21st-century comforts while exploring the buildings and discovering the treasures of one of the greatest university cities in the world.

Plain English is the art of writing clearly, concisely, and in a way that precisely communicates your message to your intended audience. This book offers 25 practical guidelines helping you to improve your vocabulary, style, grammar, and layout to achieve clear writing. It gives expert advice on all aspects of the writing process: from avoiding jargon and legalese, to organizing written information in print and online. It also shows you how it's done with hundreds of real examples, including 'before' and 'after' versions. All this is presented in an authoritative and engaging way. Completely revised and updated, this essential reference work is now even more useful: the word lists have been expanded; a new list of clichéd and troublesome words to avoid has been added; and examples of real-life stories have been replaced with more recent ones. An improved design gives the book a fresh feel.
