    It's not new, but I enjoyed teaching academic writing with Sam McCarter's A Book on Writing ​when I was working in universities, and it is a no-nonsense guide to writing.

    I searched it up, but didn't find the book. Nor is it available on online book stores. Could you please provide the link of the book?

    A simple search brings up many copies for me.

    Note my corrections above. We don't "search up" something, we "search for" something. I hope you're not expecting anyone to provide a link to an online PDF copy of an entire book - that's illegal.

    There are plenty of copies available to buy on Amazon.

    Remember - if you don't use correct capitalisation, punctuation and spacing, anything you write will be incorrect.

    For a free, online writing resource, nothing beats the OWL at Purdue, in my opinion.

    I'm not a teacher, but I write for a living. Please don't ask me about 2nd conditionals, but I'm a safe bet for what reads well in (American) English.
