Students write every day and everywhere -- for school, for work, and for fun. And nobody else in the field of composition understands the real world of student writing better than Andrea A. Lunsford. Her trademark attention to rhetorical choice, language and style, and critical thinking and argument -- based on years of experience as a researcher and classroom teacher -- make "The Everyday Writer" the tabbed handbook that can talk students through every writing situation. But wait -- there's more! New research into student writing now informs every page of the new edition...and with expanded, more visual coverage of the writing process, research and documentation, and writing in the disciplines, today's "Everyday Writer" prepares students more than ever for everyday writing challenges -- from managing a research project to writing on a Facebook wall. " The Everyday Writer" "with Exercises" is now available, too.
I used the third edition in college and just updated my resources for my freelance business.

This an excellent book for English classes as most of Ms. Lunceford's books are. However, the section on formatting APA style has problems.
The formatting for APA papers is not done the way it shows in the book.
I realize this is the 4th edition. Hopefully this has been corrected in future editions.

I am using this book to teach in a high school writing class. It is well organized and covers many style issues that rarely appear in other texts.

Great book for the beginning writer
I purchased this book about a year ago and it has really helped me see the errors in my writing. I write articles for associated content that are really good now but before I purchased this book they were turning more of my articles down then printing them because of some of my opening and closing paragraph problems. This book will show you how to edit Coordination and Subordination correctly. This is only a sample of the things that this book will show you about writing. I recommend this book highly.
