This was a required book for my Composition 2 class. It is a thick little book, and I am going to be keeping it on my shelf. This will be a great reference throughout my life.

If you actually read it, then you will learn a lot. It is simple, and well thought out. All in all, a very helpful resource.

This was used as a college English book for one of my courses. It has some really great pointers, stories, memoirs, examples and is overall a really good book to have, but it is quite big and saturated with a lot of examples; but the variety is good. I wouldn't use this outside the course though. I would highly recommend this if you are in need of this for an online course or if you want to brush up/teach yourself English reading/writing.

This book was exactly as described, maybe even in a little better shape than I expected. I am very happy with the purchase.

I love English. The varied accents, confusing structures an every other little thing under the sun which makes the English language fun.

You could spend your entire life trying to properly speak the english language.

While the Norton Guide is good - and what seems to be used all the time now - please allow me to mention what I think is the authority on this topic.

Definitely not a book that you would sit down and read. Rather bland. Information is good. Handbook is well organized, readings are interesting. It's a textbook. I'm not going to get overly excited about it. It does the job.
