Editorial Reviews

Review

"I appreciated most the rhetorical approach your team has taken and the efforts you are making to deliver a 21st century writing resource that functions across the disciplines. . .Your team has clearly thought through what our writers need to be successful as communicators."

". . .this text is excellent. It covers the writing process and expository and research-based writing and presents thoughtful student and professional models. When I used it. . . I had a great response from my students."

This book had a lot of great information but My professor had me buy this book when i already had an english book at home. after reviewing it was mostly the same information but this book does not have the stories that most of them do, just writing techniques that sometimes were not very elaborate.

The book was brand new and complies with Canadian college standards for use in an Ontario college. Amazon price was far below the college price. Well worth the buy

The booked shipped clean and well. Came like new. Only problem is my professor didn't want the book and changed it on us so I sent it back for a refund. That was quick and harmless. No complaints.
