Customer Reviews

An excellent read  July 25, 2011
by


This is a great resource. It is easy to read, but has numerous back-up citations for further study, as a scholarly textbook should have. It is a useful to for grammar and style guides. It provides clear explanations of the writing process, grammar, usage, critical thinking, and argument. I found the explanations of the research to be fascinating. If you are interested in finding out how the slightest thing that someone else does can change you, I suggest you read this textbook.






Little, Brown Compact Handbook with Exercises: 5 out of 5 stars based on 1 user reviews.
