"The book is based on a solid framework of composition theory...with emphasis on the need for awareness of the rhetorical situation. It hits all of the learning outcomes [for our courses] and acknowledges the very weaknesses we've identified in our students through assessment."
"This chapter reinforces what I tell them about how they already use writing in their lives, and the ways writing can be important to their future lives."
"Some students come in and are fantastic writers-some have not had too much exposure to formal writing. I believe this text would speak to them both."
"[This book has] incredibly clear explanations of concepts about how writing works; very engaging readings based on current, high-interest topics; and examples and scenarios that students will often relate to."
