I work in a peer-tutor center at my university and mostly encounter students using Harbrace, but LBHB is SO much better tha Harbrace or any of the others I have seen -- organized better, easier to understand. I keep mine right next to my computer -- unless my roommate has it by hers.

The book is pretty good. I have used it since my early college days. One of the problems I have is the book does not provide an answer key to the exercises. This can be frustrating if you are trying to learn and want to make sure you are doing things properly (I have the 5th edition- not sure if the other editions are the same). The book says that you can buy the answer key seperately, unfortunately, I have not been able to find it. Overall, the book has a wealth of helpful information.

This book not only contains a wealth of writing information, but it looks good, too! The full color pages make it easy to look at, and the book's small size is great for portability.

I have been using The Little, Brown Handbook for about 14 years now. I started when I was a freshman in college and haven't been without a copy since. This thing is absolutely fantastic. The layout is just about perfect, it's easy to understand and the index is the benchmark that every reference book should follow. If you write with any kind of regularity, you need this book.

Best handbook ever. I still have my second and third editions from teaching days. This was a gift for a writer friend. It and a good dictionary are all the reference tools any writer should ever need.

This book is a style guide, so it has no plot, no character development, and is about exciting as a box of Kleenex. However, it is a useful to for grammar and style guides. For example, it has business letter formats in it, necessary for any job application. Another thing it has is hints for research projects and how to organize your materials. Sot it is a writing tool, and serves as a check to your grammar-scan programs.
The only complaint is that the newer ones aren't brown. How stupid is that? You ever see Mystery Men, and how the Blue Raja has no blue in his costume? Same thing! Make it brown!
