Easy to use, flexible, and a great value. With just enough detail - and color-coded links that send students to more detail if they need it - this is the rhetoric that tells students what they need to know and resists the temptation to tell them everything there is to know. The first rhetoric designed for easy reference, like a handbook--with menus, directories, and a glossary/index that make it easy to use--in a format that's as user-friendly as the best handbooks.

With the rhetoric in front and readings in back, The Norton Field Guide to Writing, with readings includes 80+ readings in all.

The most successful new rhetoric in a generation, plus an anthology of 60 readings. Designed as 2 books in one, so that teachers can center their courses on the rhetoric or the readings--and draw from the other part as needed.

Arvustused

I would highly recommend the book to anyone new to the freshman composition classroom. -- DaRelle Rollins, Hampton University
