"It's not too often that one finds a book that offers students practical suggestions about ways that they can enhance both the form and the context of their essays... Please pass my best wishes on to the author for a job well done. This is exactly the kind of book that composition teaching needs."
—Chris Fosen, California State University, Chico State
"What I like most about the book is its emphasis on genre and visual form and its attention to emerging technologies... It feels like the text is modeling visual design in addition to addressing it within the content."
—Marshall Kitchens, Oakland University
"I think students will respond marvelously to the icons. They are a great idea for a visually literate generation... Students will find this handbook more 'familiar' to them simply because they'll recognize the 'look' of it as belonging to their world of visual information."
—Thomas Amorose, Seattle Pacific University
"What is most impressive is the emphasis on visual literacy here. It's what makes the book distinct and cutting edge... The use of icons, the color waves, and the graphics in these pages are stunning."
—Lisa Langstraat, University of Southern Mississippi
