“This book is smart and useful―and it’s well-designed. Students can easily find what they need.”
- Susanmarie Harrington, University of Vermont
“I like the focus on different types of academic essays―arguments, rhetorical analyses, research reports, personal narratives, literary analyses, and so on. I actually changed the focus of my class to address these kinds of writing.”
- Jonathan Purkiss, Pulaski Technical College
“For its price, The Little Seagull is the best college-level handbook available.”
- Paul Licata, Valencia College
“The combined glossary/index is great. Students get to understand an unfamiliar term and at the same time find a page with further instruction. This is efficient, reader-centered writing.”
- Carolyn J. Fulford, North Carolina Central University
“The Little Seagull Handbook models the very concise and precise writing we hope our students will achieve.... keeping details to a minimum and clearly explaining the essentials.”
- Robert Hurd, Anne Arundel Community College
