Customer Reviews

It's a good book for what it is written for.
Monette Drouileht
I did not give this book a 5 star because even though I was able to use the examples as a reference, I didn't use the book much for anything else.
livingtree
This is the best book for students in english, language, composition, or any courses where styles of writing are required- and lots of it.

This book is filled with examples of different writing structure and also on proper citation. Citation is something I struggle with so this book was a big help. I learned a lot about exploratory writing and on controversial writing. I did not give this book a 5 star because even though I was able to use the examples as a reference, I didn't use the book much for anything else. I emulated the types of writings for my assignments and then brushed the book aside till the next due date.

I chose five stars as my rating because this book does not skip over information about any given topic. Everything is orderly, easy to follow and understand, and fun. There are even examples and samples of different types of essays for students to learn from. I learned so much from this one book than I've learned in my whole educational/writing career. Using this book, I earned an A+ in my english course in college. This is the best book for students in english, language, composition, or any courses where styles of writing are required- and lots of it. Its also perfect for writers who want to hone their skills, learn the new formatting, or appeal to various audiences.
Great job, thanks a bunch!

I'm an English comp instructor who finds this book much more useful and relevant with the students I actually have than many alternatives. I'd like to see less emphasis on creating PowerPoints, which I don't plan ever to do in my class. I also wish the difficult chapter on Analysis & Synthesis contained more student examples. I'd also like to see "On Teenagers and Tattoos" replaced with an article that seems less dated. But these are quibbles.

I am a fan of clean layouts and well organized class materials. This book doesn't quite do it for me, although I am still learning from it. Look around at other options before going with this (unless you're required to of course).

I needed this book for school, and so far it has helped me with what I need help on. It's easy to understand and gives great examples.

This is the first time I have used the textbook rental, but the book they sent me is in good shape. Will have to see how things go when book is returned as far as this program goes. Great idea for textbook rental just hope it's not too good to be true.

It might be that I just have a great teacher, but my first year English class with this book is the first English class I have ever enjoyed being in.
