Review:

"I would describe the Harbrace as a handbook that seems more rhetorically sophisticated and in-depth than other handbooks I have used."

"How to describe the new Harbrace? Old Professor Hodges would roll over in his grave! It's still comprehensive, but now it's hip, too. The perfect blend of advice about sentence construction and e-composing."

"If I were to describe the Writer's Harbrace to a colleague, I would say that it takes an explicitly rhetorical approach to writing in different academic situations. I would say that the grammar and diction chapters use cutting-edge approaches to teaching students how to identify and correct grammar problems and enhance their prose style. I was happy to see that the rhetorical approach to teaching grammar and style I have been using for the past two years (especially) is now "standardized" in a handbook."
