When I took my college writing class, I had the most boring book!

The popular culture topics in this book engages student easily, and the writing prompts at the end of each essay give students ideas to write.

The book has some difficult stories but they are worth reading. May be too difficult to copy writing style, but will improve your mind...

This book has very nice stories in it from a variety of sources. The text is a little dated in relation to modern references and events. It can be bought cheap if your professor recommends it, but make sure it is the correct edition because with this kind of book it has to be spot on or else the stories won't be on the right page or even worse, they won't be there at all. Overall this book is a good read with interesting stories as long as it is the right edition they are asking for.

My husband is currently in school and had to get this book for his writing class. He didn't have to read the entire thing, only a few essays to which he had to write essays in response. I was actually pretty jealous of him having to use this book! It sounded like the stories were interesting, and well, I happen to love pop culture! When I took my college writing class, I had the most boring book! I think it's great to have topics that people can relate to when trying to teach them. Pop culture is definitely one of those topics, in my opinion.

Got this book for college and I barely started reading it. It's good so far, has very high vocabulary that will extend my knowledge of words. Do recommend to those who are interested in Pop Culture...interesting topics. :)

My writing class teacher requires this book. The popular culture topics in this book engages student easily, and the writing prompts at the end of each essay give students ideas to write. However, most of the essays in this book are from very professional writers, and so are written in very wacky styles. For example more than half of essays were written either with a lot of "I", or with paragraphs that each has only 1-2 sentences. They are not the "model essays" that are useful for beginning writers to emulate.
