Everyday Arguments combines a practical, student-oriented argument rhetoric with an anthology of illustrative readings drawn from arguments of everyday life. The rhetoric portion of the text contains a four-part taxonomy and guides students through the process of generating, drafting, composing, and revising written arguments. The anthology of readings is closely tied to the principles and practices introduced in the rhetoric section. Throughout the text, the author emphasizes that much can be learned about written argument and its practice from the texts we encounter on a daily basis. Writing-intensive exercises in each chapter encourage students to practice new skills as they learn them, while refreshing their knowledge of previously mastered skills. These exercises emphasize the value of collaboration, revision, and responsible research. Helpful student samples encourage students in their own writing.

I had to purchase this book for my Comp II class, so I wasn't a "willing purchaser" by any means. That said, it HAS been helpful with essay terminology and has fantastic examples of the different types of "arguments." I probably will use it as a reference once or twice after this term ends, but it won't be one I go back to time and again. It's just not that type of book.
