The platinum standard of handbooks — unmatched in accuracy, currency, and reliability

Revel The Little, Brown Handbook, Brief  is designed around the assumption that reading and writing are deeply intertwined, and that addressing students' challenges with reading can directly improve their writing. Whether they are writing short response papers, discussing a reading in an online forum, or writing a formal research paper, they need strategies and skills for reading to learn and writing to learn, and ways to connect their reading to their writing.


Suitable for students with minimal academic writing experience,  LB Brief  answers questions of writing process, grammar, and style for users of all levels. While still covering all the essentials of writing, the 7th Edition combines reliable, authoritative coverage of grammar, style, and mechanics with a new focus on critical reading and writing with sources.


Revel™ is Pearson’s newest way of delivering our respected content. Fully digital and highly engaging, Revel replaces the textbook and gives students everything they need for the course. Informed by extensive research on how people read, think, and learn, Revel is an interactive learning environment that enables students to read, practice, and study in one continuous experience — for less than the cost of a traditional textbook.
