Editorial Reviews

From the Back Cover

Key Benefit: This book offers engaging instruction in rhetoric and composition, a flexible sequence of comprehensive writing assignments, numerous examples of writing, and thorough guides to research and editing. Key Topics: Emphasizes writing as a problem-posing, problem-solving process of inquiry. Written in a friendly, encouraging tone reminiscent of Ramage and Bean's best-selling argument text, Writing Arguments. It offers balanced coverage of academic writing and personal and narrative forms and provides readers with a continuum for understanding differences between academic, thesis-driven, “closed-form” writing and personal, “open-form” writing. Accessible readings throughout clearly illustrate rhetorical principles and represent a balance between professional and student writers. Market: For professionals wishing to improve their writing skills. --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.

I will have to admit I would have never bought this book other than is being for a school text book. It's one hell of an English book that covers just about everything, written, that you could imagine. I'm glad that I have it for future reference.

I looked everywhere for Allyn and Bacon Guide to Writing Mycomplab. I thought I found it here on Amazon, but when I got the book it had no complab. Someone told me that they don't have the rights to sell the complab. I believe they should disclose that information.If they did I didn't see it. I am alittle irritated and alot of people from my class ran into the same situation as I. I gave it three stars because the service was quick and the book is new and in great shape. However, know that you are not getting mycomplab. You may still buy the book and purchase mycomplab on its own as I will have to. It will cost another 25 dollars.

This is the worst transaction of my life. I emailed this seller several times (via amazon as well as from my personal email and got no response whatsoever. I have still not received the book and no refund was posted to my account either. I tried to file an A-Z claim against the seller but the website did not give me the option to. I will never transact business on amazon again in my life.

How can i now reveiw a porduct i never got!!!

I tried to buy a used text for a few dollars less. The guy didn't know what he was doing and advertised and sent the wrong book! I didn't want to take any chances this time since classes had already been underway for 3 weeks. Bought the new text, still $20 cheaper than the campus bookstore and recieved it in 4 days with regular ground shipping.
