Overview

All of Us places the highly successful Wiener/Bazerman system in a multicultural context. Part I, the handbook, provides guidance and practice in reading skills, while Part II, the anthology, provides opportunities for application. The text's expansive critical-thinking apparatus helps students become stronger and more active readers by highlighting the connections between reading and writing. Self-tests allow students to monitor their progress.
