About the Author

John Langan has taught reading and writing at Atlantic Cape Community College near Atlantic City, New Jersey, for more than twenty-five years. The author of a popular series of college textbooks on both writing and reading, John enjoys the challenge of developing materials that teach skills in an especially clear and lively way. Before teaching, he earned advanced degrees in writing at Rutgers University and in reading at Rowan University. He also spent a year writing fiction that, he says, is now at the back of a drawer waiting to be discovered and acclaimed posthumously. While in school, he supported himself by working as a truck driver, a machinist, a battery assembler, a hospital attendant, and an apple packer. John now lives with his wife, Judith Nadell, near Philadelphia. In addition to his wife and Philly sports teams, his passions include reading and turning on nonreaders to the pleasure and power of books. Through Townsend Press, his educational publishing company, he has developed the nonprofit Townsend Library, a collection of more than a hundred new and classic stories.

This text covers a lot of really good information for anyone who's writing. Definitely a good pick by my school! They explain all of the concepts in depth, and give excellent examples. I like the instructor's edition especially because it has notes in it that the normal text doesn't, and I found those really helpful as the student.

I bought this book trusting that there's was "little or no writing" as it said in its description, but I was wrong. There was writing in almost every page.

Bought this for our daughter's college class. It's going to be a "keeper" even after her class is finished.
