I agree completely with the anonymous reviewer in "My teaching "bible."
When I graduated in 1990 in German and English, I was happy that Professor Crews gave the Commencement Address to the Foreign Languages departments. The day before I attended the massive English Department graduation and was embarrassed by the speakers who all hinted at the coming PC onslaught which ravaged the Humanities in the Nineties. In comparison, Frederick Crews gave a witty, down-to-earth and inspiring speech to the Foreign Languages students. He spoke about coming to California as a young man and the promise it gave, he spoke funnily about commencement speeches ("here we embark together on the ship of life,etc."), and he discussed our experience as students at Cal. I loved him for such a wonderful speech!
Over the years, I have kept my old copy of the Random House Handbook. I am not aware how many institutions still use it, or whether the "Crews Handbook" is still recommended by anyone. But, as I teach Business Communications, I refer to it more than any other reference book - including whatever assigned textbook is being read by my students.
I hope others will use, as I have!
