"Thank you for allowing me to review THE COMPOSITION OF EVERYDAY LIFE. Bluntly put, it's the best composition text I have read."
"When this text appears, I will adopt it and will encourage my colleagues to also. If it's not clear why, I'll restate: This text reinforces the message I try to communicate in my courses: that "composition"--the art of composing --contributes to one's well-being in ways that go beyond academia and vocation."
"On my first reading of the text, I was as happily absorbed as if I had chosen the text on my own instead of for the business of a review. I've got to tell you that that is a colossal achievement; the last time I helped select a text I wanted to scream with frustration and boredom as I worked my way through one sanctimonious, sensitive, dull text after another. There is nothing sanctimonious or dull about this text."
"I would describe the text as outstanding. It unfolds the many layers of writing as a social process in useful and accessible ways, and reveals writing as something immediate to people's everyday lives."
"My first comment has to do with the title. THE COMPOSITION OF EVERYDAY LIFE has a marvelously complex sense to it. Not only does it get at the heart of everything that I would want composition students to realize - that writing is real, it is vital, it is not "merely" academic, it is everyday - but also suggests the subject of that real, vital, everyday writing; that is the "composition" of everyday life."
