From the Back Cover

Guidelines: A Cross-Cultural Reading/Writing Text, Second Edition, integrates classic and contemporary readings with essay assignments that emphasize the connection between reading and writing.

Format: Paperback
I began using Guidelines (the first edition) in 1995 when it was essentially prescribed by an EFL colleague using it to teach another section of composition. I found it to be one of the best texts I've ever used for a comp class. The readings are genuinely engaging and students really felt motivated to reply in writing and with in-class discussion. Many years later, I'm no longer teaching composition, but keep this book on my shelf anyway since I never know when I will want to refer to one of the readings.

I've used Guidelines for my advanced ESL composition course at a community college for the past six or seven years, and it's the best book I know of for the purpose. My only regret is that May Sarton's essay "The Rewards of Living a Solitary Life" was omitted from this new edition. I've had some great student papers that came from reading the Sarton essay back-to-back with Yezierska's "College," and considering the difference between solitude and loneliness. It's only a few pages--put it back in next time!

This is a text book that my professor required. But after the semester, I decided to keep it instead of selling to other/ toss it away. The stuff it teaches is really helpful! I usually get C at my writing class, but after following the instructions in the book, and adding some efforts, I get an A-! cheers!

My professor uses this as our Textbook for English Composition If or International Students.

It's very easy to understand and helps quite a lot! The back has interesting points.

I'll definitely keep it for the rest of my Uni years to help me write better.
