I had to purchase this book for my college classes, I thought I was a pretty go writer until I started using this. There are a lot of things we do when writing and we don't realize they are wrong. Strongly recommended!!
this is the best freshman comp handbook that there is. no doubt about it. anyone who writes anything should have a copy sitting on their shelf.
