W.W. Watt's An American Rhetoric has been for years, edition after edition, far and away the best book in the field. In my early teaching years I used it...in freshman composition courses - always after carefully examining supposedly competitive books...Used slowly and carefully, as in a composition course, An American Rhetoric gives a solid foundation - clear explanations and exercises ample enough (and amusing enough) to push all students to their learning thresholds...No other book on writing is as easy to read or accurate...An American Rhetoric cannot make great writiers, but, carefully studied, it can eliminate common errors and free writers to reveal themselves for what they are. -John Gardner
