This Book was well written and very informative.

As a centrist, I found many of the topics to be biased against the libertarian/conservative.

This book is exactly what I needed for my English 211 class.

I believe that the textbook "Everything's an Argument/with Readings" has a really great technique in showing that anything is a possible argument. I really love how the book, edition 5, is up to date in the happenings in the world around us, which makes it easier to relate to each argument discussed. This book really goes into great depth in explaining how to read an argument, write an argument, how to recognize style and present arguments, how to evaluate arguments, and arguments itself. I found this book to be very helpful in understanding different contexts of argumentation and representation in each context. There are so many things found in this book that I would have never looked at as an argument. There are so many different types of arguments surrounding us in forms of pictures, articles, videos, cartoons, and many more. The evaluations of this book truly opened my eyes to the different views on not only argumentation but also the knowledge and ideas that go into an argument. This is a book you need to read if you want to know anything and everything about argumentation.

I enjoyed this book and writing many essays from it for my various writing classes. You will enjoy the topics presented in the book with great ideas to help you start debating. As a centrist, I found many of the topics to be biased against the libertarian/conservative. Even with the more-than-obvious anti-right bias, it was still an excellent book. The reason why I said it was anti-right (maybe you should listen to this part) is because the authors picked topics, pictures, essays, or artwork, that would (un)seemingly go against conservatives and their ideas. Now, I am sure someone else could have made the same book and used topics that would go against liberal policies, presidents, but that wouldn't be acceptable in college. (kidding)
I have to admit that I didn't enjoy the book as much as I wanted. If all liberals in the classroom agree with something, but cannot prove it, that could be a liberal bias...
My advice to the authors is they should try to focus on making it completely even. I know there are some excellent conservative authors in there, but this bias needs to go.
Thank you.

This Book was well written and very informative. It manages to make information that it conveys interesting and the addition of the readings helps the student understand what the Author is trying to convey. It has really helped supplement what the teacher is teaching.

This book is the text for a critical thinking class. The book covers rhetorical argument going back to Aritstotle and the logos, pathos, and ethos. The Roman rhetoric of Cicero is described along with Toulmin.
