Summary

The best-selling college rhetoric for nearly 25 years, The St. Martin’s Guide has achieved an unparalleled record of success by providing practical innovations for the ever-changing composition course. Comprehensive yet flexible, The Guide’s acclaimed step-by-step guides to each type of writing offer sure-fire invention strategies to get students started, combined with thorough advice on critical reading, working with sources, and careful revision.

Axelrod and Cooper’s class-tested guidance on visual rhetoric, online teaching and learning, and more is available for instructors who incorporate these topics into their courses — but not intrusive, for those who don’t. The new edition has been re-engineered to reflect and build on the actual writing processes of students and does even more to prepare them for the writing they will do in other college courses.

Very Good Book May 14, 2011

I consider this textbook to be one of the best how-to-write books I've read. This is not a technical textbook, but is recommended for a more holistic approach to thinking about how to write and how to improve your written communication. The new edition has been re-engineered to reflect and build on the actual writing processes of students and does even more to prepare them for the writing they will do in other college courses. I highly recommend it to anyone who wants a detailed plan for learning to be an excellent writer.
