"Not just the size, but the conciseness of this book is an incredible (and rare) virtue."
—Paul Zajac, The Pennsylvania State University

"It has straightforward, commonsense advice, and covers the main methods of writing, so the book is easy for students to use from Day 1 of class. It meets my needs by giving me a writing book with MLA rules and basic proofreading tips."
—Amy Norton, Pierce College

"Precise, accessible, yet not overly simplistic, and not too many distracting elements.... I appreciate that it is concise and focused. It’s a book students can read, understand, benefit from across multiple levels of preparation, and continue to make use of beyond the class."
—Bob Nowlan, University of Wisconsin-Eau Claire

"I particularly appreciate [this book’s] ability to talk globally about writing.… It looks more at commonalities in all types of writing… which ultimately our students need."
—Polly Buckingham, Eastern Washington University
