THE THOMSON HANDBOOK is the rhetorical handbook for the digital age. Blakesley and Hoogeveen place students' writing front and center with an innovative page format that keeps students' attention focused on their own writing and on activities, checklists, projects, and visual aids that help them write. The page design and innovative visuals make information about writing, reading, research, documentation, technology, and grammar easy for students to access and understand. To accomplish their writing tasks, students are taught to ground their rhetorical decisions in the specific context in which they are writing. As a further aid to writing and research, THE THOMSON HANDBOOK gives students more and better information on using technology than any other handbook. "Technology Toolbox" features throughout, as well as two dedicated parts of the book (Parts 5 and 6), teach students how to apply technology to their writing tasks, whether the task is to write a personal essay, a persuasive essay, a critical review, a photographic essay, a technology autobiography, a blog, a website, or more than twenty other different kinds of writing projects.

Stephen Elliott has been a scientist at Chiang Mai University since 1986, where he teaches courses on wildlife conservation and tropical plant ecology. David Blakesley is the director of Wildlife Landscapes, an ecological consultancy based in the UK which is involved with habitat restoration of temperate and tropical ecosystems. Kate Hardwick has a PhD in restoration ecology from the University of Wales and works in the restoration ecology team at The Royal Botanic Gardens, Kew.

Jeff Hoogeveen is a professor and the Director of the Composition Program at Lincoln University. He teaches composition, advanced writing and film courses.
