From the Back Cover:

Relax. You will enjoy this journey.

· Do you believe there’s a writer within you? Authors Bill Kelly and Deb Lawton do, and they wrote Odyssey to take readers on a writing voyage–a journey–of self-expression (see the “Discovering Connections” sections) and confidence building to help them find the writer within.
· Have you ever had a “conversation” with your textbook author? With Odyssey, you will get the same conversational, non-intimidating tone (see the “Q & A” sections) that you would with your instructor or a tutor.
· Would you like to be able to do exercises based on your ability and progress to more challenging work? The “Comprehension and Practice” and “Challenge” exercises, by design, enable readers to start off within their capabilities, grasp the material, and move to more challenging exercises. This exercise structure lays a solid foundation for good writing.

Here’s why you will want this new edition:

· The exercises have been refreshed for stronger, more interesting writing prompts.
· Many of the readings have been updated to reflect current, more relevant topics.
· The newly added portfolio feature will help readers to improve as writers by encouraging them to think critically about their writing as well as others’ writings, assist readers with timed essay writing, and strengthen the connection of reading to writing for deeper reading understanding and more clarity in writing.
