The Little Seagull Handbook is easy to use, contains complete documentation guidelines, and is the only pocket handbook to include thorough coverage of paragraphs. This new handbook is an indispensable and affordable tool for all students who write.
“The material on rhetoric and genre is a real plus.”
“A book students can really use on their own.”
“The chapters on documentation are great.”
“I would order this handbook. I commend its clarity and conciseness.”
“I like the focus on different types of academic essays—arguments, rhetorical analyses, research reports, personal narratives, literary analyses, and so on. I actually changed the focus of my class to address these kinds of writing.”
“For its price, The Little Seagull is the best college-level handbook available.”
Carolyn J. Fulford
“The combined glossary/index is great. Students get to understand an unfamiliar term and at the same time find a page with further instruction. This is efficient, reader-centered writing.”
“The Little Seagull Handbook models the very concise and precise writing we hope our students will achieve…. keeping details to a minimum and clearly explaining the essentials.”
“This book is smart and useful—and it’s well-designed. Students can easily find what they need.”
