He has authored many books and has won or been short-listed for several educational literary prizes.

"The greatest strength of Success in Academic Writing, 2nd ed. lies in the style and approach taken by Day. He purposefully uses a personal tone to replicate the face-to-face conversation of a writing tutor and student. ... this book would be useful for ESL teachers who could in turn adapt the materials for a lower language level."
