Responding to the "increasing mobility of texts," MLA now encourages writers to focus on the process of crafting the citation, beginning with the same questions for any source. One of the first textbook authors to focus on multimedia composing, Lester Faigley employs his own advice to engage students in every step of the writing process-for both college composition and everyday life-and pulls back the curtain on how writers work.

Some textbooks make you feel like editing them before you can read them; they are overdone with long, drawn-out drivel, as though the authors got paid by the word count. This is not one of them. The information is presented in a clear, non-boring, progressive way that anyone can follow. It uses many examples to illustrate the message they are trying to communicate. (OK, some of the sample writings are dull, but whaddya gonna do?) It has a point-by-point section in each chapter which goes back over all the pertinent information, so that when you're writing a paper, you can be sure you've covered all the bases and you're not overlooking any part of the assignment. All in all, I'm very glad my professor chose this book to teach the class. It made me a better writer, and it didn't bore me to tears in the process.

needed it for a class

good samples of papers

My English 101 professor had this as required reading and I can honestly say that I never opened this text book. That's not to say that your professor won't assign anything out of it, but I didn't find this to be of any use. I earned an "A" in the course no problem without using this pricey book.

My best advice is to wait and see it you actually need it and THEN order it because from me to you, it's not fun to waste money in college.

Bralore
correct book

Didn't really use the book much in my class, but for what we did use it for it was very good to have. The price on
Amazon was much cheaper than my schools bookstore. You will probably save a lot of money if you get it here instead of a school's bookstore.

Book is in good condition
