All writers make choices — and better choices get better results. EasyWriter distills Andrea Lunsford’s teaching and research into the essentials that today’s writers need to make good choices in any rhetorical situation. In addition to Lunsford’s trademark attention to language, critical thinking, and argument, EasyWriter now reflects the results of new research into student writing and offers expanded, up-to-the-minute coverage of the writing process, research and documentation, and writing in the disciplines — all in a pocket handbook that’s easy to use, easy to carry, and easy to afford.
