Emphasizes the importance of style in writing for a global audience
Revel Style: Lessons in Clarity and Grace asserts that good style is a matter of making informed choices in the service of one’s readers. While writers know best what they want to say, readers ultimately decide if they’ve said it well. This long-established and highly respected text builds on that premise, with this 13th Edition providing up-to-date advice on gender-neutral writing and writing for global audiences. The principles offered here help writers understand what readers expect and encourage writers to revise to meet those expectations more effectively. This book is all you need to understand the principles of effective writing.

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.

NOTE: Revel is a fully digital delivery of Pearson content. This ISBN is for the standalone Revel access card. In addition to this access card, you will need a course invite link, provided by your instructor, to register for and use Revel.

Author Biography

Joseph Bizup is Associate Professor of English and Associate Dean for Undergraduate Academic Programs and Policies in the College of Arts & Sciences at Boston University. 

Joe’s interests have ranged over the years from Victorian literature and culture, to cognitive psychology and linguistics, to writing studies, writing pedagogy, and writing program administration. What unites these interests is his concern with the ways in which language, especially written language, functions and circulates within social, intellectual, and institutional systems. His first book, Manufacturing Culture: Vindications of Early Victorian Industry (2003), examines strains of preindustrial rhetoric in nineteenth-century Britain. The bulk of his later work has been more pedagogical in focus. His approach to teaching research-based writing, known as “BEAM,” has been adopted by a number of colleges and universities, and he has contributed as a co-author or editor to several textbooks, including The Norton Reader (13th, 14th , and 15th editions), The Craft of Research (4th edition), Kate L. Turabian’s A Manual for Writers of Research Papers, Theses, and Dissertations (9th edition), Kate L. Turabian’s Student’s Guide to Writing College Papers (5th edition), and Style: Lessons in Clarity and Grace (11th , 12th , and 13th editions).

Additionally, Joe directed the College of Arts & Sciences Writing Program at Boston University and the Undergraduate Writing Program at Columbia University, and he co-directed the Bass Writing Program at Yale University. He holds a B.A. in English and mathematics from the University of Virginia, an M.A. in English from the University of Maryland, and a Ph.D. in English from Indiana University.
