From the Publisher"I consider this book to be a serviceable and useful text for introducing students to the research paper writing process. I would say that it is a very useful book, and that I have no real complaints. As with all texts, its real worth in the classroom is the result of the combination of the text itself and its use by the instructor. For most instructors, the book offers a useful tool to supplement instruction."
"This manual answers even the most basic steps on how to get started. The book is written in an almost conversational tone rather than a textbook tone. And because of this students are more likely to pick up the book to seek out the answers to their questions. This book is student-oriented and goes step-by-step through the process of writing a paper. It is wonderful aid to the first-time writer of a paper."
"That it is eminently "teach-fromable". Also, it is a book that will help students throughout their academic careers. (In addition, being a latecomer to the use of computers, I learned a lot from the chapter on computer resources.) I'm very impressed with it on all levels. Over and above particulars (see below), I very much liked the tone of the commentary—neither patronizing nor pedantically remote."
"This is an excellent guide to research for students, well thought out and easy for the student to use. The text is especially helpful if the colleague is concerned about note cards, as I am. Also it includes a very good discussion and examples of the thesis statement, outlining, and the structure of the paper. I highly recommend this text! In fact, I think yours is one of the best research paper guides I have seen (and I have seen many handbooks and research guides having served as the chair of the handbook selection committee in my department in 2003 and 2005)."
"Thorough and concise - get a copy for yourself! It would be an asset for any class where a research paper is required. Great resource! I wish it would have been available when I was a college frosh doing my first research paper!"
