Editorial Reviews

Susanmarie Harrington
“This book is smart and useful—and it’s well-designed. Students can easily find what they need.”
Jonathan Purkiss
“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.”
Paul Licata
“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.”
Robert Hurd
“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.”
Pat McQueeney
“A book students can really use on their own.”
