Really useful for first time English writing learners. I never used as much since I have a good writing background but whenever I was stuck on a thing or not in terms of writing or structure, this book was a great referral.

Came on time and it is a very helpful guide for the expert-beginner writer! It was required for my college English class and has been very helpful throughout the course!

Make sure you're ordering the correct copy of this book, if the ISBN number ends in a 5 it is spiral bound, otherwise it is comb bound. While this might not be a big deal to some people I was highly annoyed as I was specifically looking for a certain version and wound up with the wrong one despite the website description.

As a college professor using this book in her Intensive Writing class, I found this book to be very accessible to students, unlike some others texts I've used in the past, like _We Are America_. The organization is particularly interesting, as it groups different topics by color and tabs, and the indexes are very easy to use, making it a good reference source for all college writers. It is also very thorough, covering all the different grammatical and composition issues students might encounter in their college-level English courses.

In a way, its advantages are also its disadvantages, because it sometimes seems to try to do *too much* in one book. It might be helpful to divide the book into sections that would be relevant for very beginning college writers as well as sections that would be more advanced, (like the research portion and documentation), so that students who needed the basics could easily find them, while students who were looking for higher-level writing tips could go straight to the sections they require.

Overall, though, I would recommend this book for college-level writers. I would suggest any student who buys this book keep it for their future writing classes, as it will prove useful throughout their college career.

It was encouraging to be reminded of the basics. This book helped and provided me with the path to freedom and peace in writing.

Not allowed on Kindle for Windows 8. I just wasted money to not be able to read this book. What was the point?

Book is as expected, does pretty good job outlining how each specific writing style is done. Needed to do Chicago style, provides great help.

Well written for what it is. This is one that I am glad I bought instead of just renting.
