Editorial Reviews

Review

"I told my book rep. that I have never fallen so in love with a textbook before as this one; it is clear, user-friendly, informative, fresh, creative--and it makes the subject matter salient and fun."

"I teach at a community college and I have students in my classes from 16-80. What I find more and more is that students need a handbook that develops common ground for all of them. This is hard to do, but I think you have hit that middle ground."

"The focus on different disciplines is marvelous! There is a difference in how you research for science versus the humanities. Great explanations of the differences and strong suggestions for how to guide the students through different types of research."

"The step-by-step approach to a research project is appropriate, and I find it more user-friendly than any other handbook I have reviewed or used."

The book has all the information about MLA and other ones I do not need... right now. To be honest I would not buy this book new because you can find all the information on MLA websites, but its worth being bought used
