Editorial Reviews

Review

"It is a text that has all of the components that are needed to make students critical readers, thinkers and writers. From a text that explains the technical details to well selected examples of types of writing, DYNAMIC ARGUMENT is an all in one text for the writing classroom."

"I highly recommend this book. It is very well organized and clear in its objectives. It takes you step by step through the art of persuasion in a way that builds on previously learned knowledge, reinforcing each step, then, along the way."

"Unlike many other rhetoric texts, this book presents both classic and contemporary information so students have a wide array of techniques to choose from when adapting their own style to their arguments." --This text refers to an alternate Paperback edition.

This book is horrible. The example essays are terrible, but my prof says that part of the point is to see what is wrong with the essays so we can all avoid similar mistakes. I am generally generous when rating textbooks. They are not really meant to be entertaining, but this was is truly awful. Poorly written, uninteresting, lay out of the book doesn't make sense, poor flow from one chapter to another..... Please don't make this text your assigned reading, Professors!

I only recommend this book as a required text. It's full of boring, lengthly, poorly written essays. Other than that, there's not much to say about it.

Amazon is KING for school text books! New books for a fraction of the college book store price!! I received this book just as described and in a super fast manner. Although I have yet to review the book, It will be by my side for 16 wks of Eng. Comp II.
