The most successful new rhetoric in a generation, plus an anthology of 60 readings. Designed as 2 books in one, so that teachers can center their courses on the rhetoric or the readings―and draw from the other part as needed.

Easy to use, flexible, and a great value. With just enough detail – and color-coded links that send students to more detail if they need it – this is the rhetoric that tells students what they need to know and resists the temptation to tell them everything there is to know. The first rhetoric designed for easy reference, like a handbook―with menus, directories, and a glossary/index that make it easy to use―in a format that’s as user-friendly as the best handbooks.

With the rhetoric in front and readings in back, The Norton Field Guide to Writing, with readings includes 80+ readings in all.

Review:

The Norton Field Guide to Writing, with readings can be used in a variety of ways, depending on each individual teacher’s style and focus. The apparatus is well-designed, especially the detailed focus on genres, and each chapter includes effective sample writing.”
- Allison Smith, Middle Tennessee State University

“The selection of longer, shorter, expository, and researched essays makes the book a useful teaching tool. The readings are bound by a common creativity that will inspire students to make more daring approaches to their writing.”
- Christopher Harris, University of Louisiana at Monroe

“I would highly recommend the book to anyone new to the freshman composition classroom.”
- DaRelle Rollins, Hampton University

“This book nails the rhetoric, and the readings have enough variety in them to support multiple approaches for instruction.”
- Joanna Clark, Cisco Junior College

“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 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 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
