Editorial Reviews

Review

"It will change your students' writing."

"This book has the best design I've seen yet for a composition text. It provides structure and context for the writing process and gives students a change to write about issues that are important. The text also allows easy implementation of a portfolio system."

Fast shipping. The book is in pretty decent condition. Exactly what I needed from my english class and I really enjoy using it because it's easy to understand and teaches well.

I purchased (rented) this for my kindle app, specifically my kindle for college. after spending 50.00 to rent, I realized that my kindle "does not support" this book, neither does my iphone. I bring my kindle to class because its cheaper than having to buy the actual book. now I can't even do that.. because it doesn't work on anything but the kindle app on my laptop. very irritating. not sure if I should just go rent the book from the school or ask the professor if I can bring in my laptop, either way its irritating and an inconvenience. amazon should let you know which books are supported/not supported by an ACTUAL KINDLE!!!!!!!

The sticker on the front said, "QUALITY USED BOOK". Emphasis on "quality" - I have a hard time believing that it isn't brand-new. Perfect condition!

This book explains things on a level that can be understood easily. The text encourages one to "think outside the box" of a topic and use the idea of invention to be able to produce a more productive work.

There are no real pages numbers, so when I bought it for an online class I was taking, it was hard to figure out where I needed to be.

Don't get this for college if you need the Brief Edition, which has around 200 more pages than this Concise Edition.
