Summarizing

Learning to Summarize

Summarize this one:

"Try different tones: chatty, authoritative, ironic. Try different ways of organizing: starting with the conclusion, building up to it last. Persuade with reasoning, with anecdote. Hide the weak arguments, admit them openly. Try to write it in half the length. Try different formats on the page such as lists or pictures or diagrams."

This comes from page 123 of Writing With Power: Techniques for Mastering the Writing Process. The book was published in New York in 1981 by Oxford University Press and was written by Peter Elbow.
