Topics covered include: working as a writer, shaping language, presenting your writing, writing arguments, research, documentation, understanding grammar, and understanding punctuation and mechanics.With its handy format and comprehensive scope of material (including the latest information in writing for the Web) this is the perfect desk reference for anyone that needs to write effectively for business or personal use.

Found out after I purchased this book and went to class that I really didn't need this book. It was just aa suggestion by the teacher and could return if I wanted to, but did decide to keep for my son that may need it for his communication classes.

Usually not required for courses, but a decent, fun to read companion to required book. Came shrink wrapped with bent corners and a few marks. Fine besides that. Spiral bound with no online content access or key codes. Good for brushing up.

I don't recall ever writing a review but this book deserves one. I am keeping this book through school and may even use it later in work. It is just too handy to get rid of. My kids may get some good out of it as well.
