There are a lot of good writings in this book.

Not only did the book take 3 1/2 weeks to arrive, but it was not the right book I needed for the class!

This book was needed in a college education class.

Format: Paperback
I disagree with the previous reviewer that this text is "far to the left." The texts included for discussion are not to determine political viewpoints; they are to challenge accepted social assumptions. Overwhelmingly, the readings are politically neutral and target non-political subjects like trying to fit in in a high school, cheerleading, participating in college traditions, etc. Some texts may make politically-sensitive professors uncomfortable, but they are few and far between, and can easily be ignored (each section contains more essays than an instructor can reasonably cover). These texts, like John Stewart's graduation speech, are obviously included because they present an unusual viewpoint, or because they oppose or debunk a commonly held assumption. I think the previous reviewere missed the point and threw out the baby with the water. Latterell asks students to challenge and question the texts, not to blindly accept them as "truth."

For example, the John Stewart graduation speech takes humorous potshots at the declining state of education when Stewart states that if the college is honoring HIM then education is indeed in trouble. One would except a graduation speech to contain many references to the lofty ideals of education, but Stewart does nothing but point to his own shortcomings, thus casting doubts on the wisdom of academia for selecting him, of all people, as an exemplary alumn. Stewart being the raging liberal that he is cannot help but take at least one indirect poke at Bush, but this is not the focus of the essay and students are sophisticated enough readers that they can respond to Stewart's poking in kind, or ignore it without much scuffing.

Format: Paperback
I have used Remix twice in developmental English classes. The reader presents students with a series of cultural assumptions and texts that support or challenge them. Some of the readings were too challenging for developmental-level students, so several of our developmental faculty members created a custom reader called P/Remix for developmental-level. (Ask your book rep about creating a custom edition for your population.)
The text is engaging for younger students, but some of our older learners were nervous about the more intrusive activities (I don't use the assignment about showing the contents of the student's wallets!) and found the pop culture references off-putting. However, this can be dealt with by carefully choosing readings.

A fascinating text with a smart premise: culture is mixing, remixing, and reinventing constantly. Lively readings. Students will respond well.

this book was definately easy for me, transitioning from HS to college was scary but books like this make the college experience easier. Basically a large compilation of essays, with review questions. Its a good book.

The book i bought on amazon was in good condition for being used.
