The "Rhetoric" section presents a full range of writing strategies, along with chapters on paragraphs, sentences, style, and three specialized types of writing, and in-depth chapters on planning and drafting, as well as revising and editing a paper. The "Research Guide" section includes three comprehensive chapters on the research process. The "Reader" section contains forty-four essays that illustrate the different writing strategies and display a wide variety of styles, tones, and themes. The "Handbook" section offers easy access to the major elements of grammar, punctuation, and mechanics, and includes a unit on spelling and a glossary of word usage. (The book is available in an alternate version--without the "Handbook" section.) For anyone wanting an all-in-one resource for learning or reviewing rhetorical writing strategies.Read Less

This was a required book for a college writing class. That said, it is one of the better ones I've seen. The layout and explanation of things within it are easy to understand and the direction it gives to better your writing process are well written.
