Editorial Reviews

Review

"Every time I get a review copy of a new composition text in the mail, I find myself comparing it to INVENTING ARGUMENTS. They all come up short. INVENTING ARGUMENTS has everything I need in one book."

"This is one of the most student-friendly texts on argument. The arrangement of chapters, focus on specific writing projects and the discussion of the nuts and bolts of drafting an argument paper responds to the way students ask their questions."

"I think the writing and workshop activities are well crafted. The questions posed to students in the exercises sound like questions I might ask in class."

I bought this book specifically for my English Composition class requirement, however I find that it contains very relevent information and concepts that I can use in daily conversation not just while writing papers, etc. I love the setup of the book, I might just keep this even after the class is over.
