This rhetorical reader is designed to help individuals improve their abilities to think, read, and write on progressively more sophisticated levels. It features a collection of 56 provocative, interesting, rhetorically organized essays accompanied by clear, well-developed rhetorical introductions, sample essays, and carefully sequenced prereading and prewriting questions, comprehension questions, and writing projects.

The essays cover a broad range of contemporary topics and portray the universality of human experience as expressed through the viewpoints of men and women, many different ethnic and racial groups, and a variety of ages and social classes.
