Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This review is from: Allyn & Bacon Guide to Writing, The, Brief Edition (6th Edition) (Paperback)
As with any college course, the author, normally a professor practicing larceny somewhere, requires his/her own students to purchase his/her "masterpiece". This is just another case, except this collegiate level book is for a high school senior writing class. The book itself is fine, the price is pure garbage. No educational book is worth more than a cheap paperback novel...so the price tag of over $80 is just another example of what's gone wrong with this
country. I'm sure, however, that if the book were purchased on location at a university it would
be 40% more expensive. Most of these books aren't worth the paper they're written on....enjoy.
