“The level of detail is perfect. …It leaves room for the instructor to move about to add material, to pitch the content in his or her particular way. Writers, even student writers, want advice, not directives. In years of reviewing, I have seen few books that offer something new and valuable and interesting. The Norton Field Guide is one. The innovation it offers is long overdue.” (Paul Heilker, Virginia Polytechnic Institute and State University)
“The amount of detail is perfect. Students will find this book easy to understand—and will appreciate not being overloaded with information.” (Mitzi Walker Jones, University of Arkansas, Fort Smith)
“The beauty of the Field Guide is that it can conform to any style of teaching and appeal to any pedagogical approach.”” (Tony Procell, El Paso Community College)
“I would highly recommend the book to anyone new to the freshman composition classroom.” (DaRelle Rollins, Hampton University) --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.
