Review:

"In STEPS TO WRITING WELL, the chapters are easily accessible to my English 101 students. The ability to understand boosts their self-confidence and allows them to really grasp the concepts."

"Upon reading STEPS, my students usually comment that they are surprised that they can actually understand an English text."

"Wyrick's strength lies in her ability to write clear, effective explanations."

"I really like the "user-friendly" style and tone, the humor, and the ability of students to use and understand it."

"The direct, straightforward advice, the student-specific examples, and the engaging professional essays make this textbook stand out from the others."
