From the Publisher:

A progressive alternative to traditional handbooks, this compact reference for writers offers concise yet thorough coverage of all handbook concerns, with material uniquely organized around the stages of the writing process. Traditional topics on issues of style, grammar, punctuation, and mechanics are presented as "editing" choices students make in the final stage of the writing process. With composition expert Toby Fulwiler's advice on writing, The College Writer's Reference offers the only teachable treatment of the writing process available in a brief handbook. The four–color text design, lay–flat spiral binding, and abundant use of student writing and hand-edited examples all make information easy to find, use, and understand.
