Now available in a version with a handbook, providing everything students need to write. The Field Guide is up front, providing the guidance students need for writing all the kinds of discourse they need to write in college; the Handbook is in the back, helping them to edit what they write..

“The Norton Field Guide is one of the best rhetorics I’ve seen at achieving essential coverage and brevity. It gives guidance to new instructors and flexibility to others. ...The readings are great.” (Nedra Reynolds, University of Rhode Island )
“The level of detail is perfect. ...It leaves room for the instructor to move about to add material, to pitch the content in his or her particular way. Writers, even student writers, want advice, not directives. In years of reviewing, I have seen few books that offer something new and valuable and interesting. The Norton Field Guide is one. The innovation it offers is long overdue.” (Paul Heilker, Virginia Polytechnic Institute and State University )
“The amount of detail is perfect. Students will find this book easy to understand—and will appreciate not being overloaded with information.” (Mitzi Walker Jones, University of Arkansas, Fort Smith )
“The beauty of the Field Guide is that it can conform to any style of teaching and appeal to any pedagogical approach.”” (Tony Procell, El Paso Community College )
“I would highly recommend the book to anyone new to the freshman composition classroom.” (DaRelle Rollins, Hampton University )
