B The Seventh Edition builds upon its reputation as the most effective and economical solution to the widest variety of writing problems writers will encounter. This comprehensive guide uses the most effective teaching method there is: showing, not telling. Readers are guided to solve their writing problems almost entirely by means of typical, real-life examples. The authors maintain the brevity of previous editions and explain rhetorical principles in clear, concise language that students can easily understand and quickly implement. Even the longest sections take up only a few pages and each visually attractive page is designed to enhance the user-friendly format of the guide. Further, the content is arranged alphabetically by correction symbol, a feature found in no other handbook. This format gives readers instant access to information relevant to the problem at hand and helps them learn the principles of the English language so they do not repeat the same mistakes. Gives readers immediate answers to specific problems. Offers sufficient information to solve them, yet does so with extreme brevity and clarity. Presents a table of correction symbols that doubles as a table of contents to help students easily find answers. Cross-references a network of logical relationships among subjects that appear under separate headings. Helps develop writing style and addresses ESL problems. For anyone who writes, especially for composition, creative writing, and business and technical writing.
