Overview

Updated with expanded documentation, research, and academic writing coverage, The Brief Penguin Handbook continues to revolutionize the way handbooks present information.

The design and approach of The Brief Penguin Handbook started with ideas and suggestions from real students, and thus is uniquely successful when it comes to giving students the information they need in a format they will actually use. Because of its unique visual guides and models for writing, research, and documentation, distinctive coverage of writing for different purposes, and Lester Faigley’s clear, accessible explanations, The Brief Penguin Handbook is a best-selling handbook. The Fifth Edition continues to innovate with new "maps" at the opening of each part, to help students navigate the writing, research, and documentation processes, as well as navigate and find answers in the handbook itself; and new “Writer at Work” sections demonstrate the messy, thoughtful processes that students go through when writing.
