Years ago I bought Michelle Nijhius’s The Science Writers’ Handbook on ebook… and then completely forgot about it. I rediscovered it this month. It’s a great read for anyone interested in learning how to breathe life into an essay. Nijhius explains that essays are stories about stories, meaning that a good essay is not only a journey in a topic, but also a journey of an author learning about a topic. Her book is also a good jumping off point for anyone interested in what books to read about essays, from Phillip Lapote to Anne Fadiman.
