Why the college is making us use books based on two different MLA editions, I don't know. Just be careful that if this specific book (copyright 2015) is required, it uses some outdated MLA styles. I don't know how much of the book that affects but I was getting really frustrated since the two books said different things.
The book came quick and is in good enough condition for me. So that was good.
I too bought this for a class, and it's actually a pretty good book. Not worth the price, but no college textbooks are. But anyways, there are lots of stories which deal with contemporary issues, and it's all really modern (I was surprised to read a page talking about Obama, I guess I was used to outdated books which still listed Bush as president) and it's a mix of classic literature (such as The Lottery) with modern issues (such as the debate of whether or not football is too dangerous for kids). It also has chapters about things like narrative writing, persuasive writing.
I don't think anyone would crack open this book more than once, but it's not a read that will put you to sleep. It'll keep you entertained for a while.
In brand new condition except for the school district stamp in the inner front hardcover.
Will be and already has been a high quality teaching tool for preparing my East Oakland students for college level writing based on complex texts.
