Summary

This best-selling brief text shows students how to analyze all kinds of arguments -- not just essays and editorials, but clothes, cars, ads, and Web site designs -- and then how to use what they learn to write their own effective arguments. Andrea Lunsford and John Ruszkiewicz's instruction is engaging, informal, and jargon-free. Emphasizing inclusiveness, humor, and visual argument, it makesEverything's an Argumentstudent-centered and immediately accessible. Students like this book because it helps them understand how a world of argument already surrounds them; instructors like it because it helps students construct their own arguments about that world.
