Editorial Reviews

Nedra Reynolds
“The Norton Field Guide is one of the best rhetorics I’ve seen at achieving essential coverage and brevity. It gives guidance to new instructors and flexibility to others. …The readings are great.”
Paul Heilker
“The level of detail is perfect. …It leaves room for the instructor to move about to add material, to pitch the content in his or her particular way. Writers, even student writers, want advice, not directives. In years of reviewing, I have seen few books that offer something new and valuable and interesting. The Norton Field Guide is one. The innovation it offers is long overdue.”
Mitzi Walker Jones
“The amount of detail is perfect. Students will find this book easy to understand—and will appreciate not being overloaded with information.”
Allison Smith
“The Norton Field Guide to Writing, with readings can be used in a variety of ways, depending on each individual teacher’s style and focus. The apparatus is well-designed, especially the detailed focus on genres, and each chapter includes effective sample writing.”
Christopher Harris
“The selection of longer, shorter, expository, and researched essays makes the book a useful teaching tool. The readings are bound by a common creativity that will inspire students to make more daring approaches to their writing.”
Joanna Clark
“This book nails the rhetoric, and the readings have enough variety in them to support multiple approaches for instruction.”
Tony Procell
“The beauty of the Field Guide is that it can conform to any style of teaching and appeal to any pedagogical approach.”
DaRelle Rollins
“I would highly recommend the book to anyone new to the freshman composition classroom.”
