Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Clear, concise writing style and friendly, unpretentious tone. More than a million students have come to rely on easy-to-understand explanations that come directly from the author's own classroom experience. Diana Hacker explains concepts intelligently but briefly, allowing students to find answers faster than they do with other handbooks.

An indispensable reference text. Trademark reference features such as hand-edited sentences, tutorials demonstrating how to use the book, a simplified brief menu inside the front cover, and a user-friendly index, with entries such as I vs. me, help students find the information they need — and then understand what they find. And The Bedford Handbook's award-winning design, with full color and lively icons, makes the pages easy to scan.

A thorough classroom text. The Bedford Handbook includes all the topics covered in a composition course, from composing and revising to grammar and mechanics to research and documentation. Nine sample papers illustrate effective writing and document design. Hundreds of exercises, some with answers, allow students to test themselves.

Innovative charts and boxes. In addition to providing the charts you expect to find in a handbook, Diana Hacker has designed several flow charts for important topics such as subject-verb agreement and run-on sentences. She has also written 20 Looking at Yourself as a Writer charts, which encourage self-reflection, and 50 grammar checker boxes, which show students what current grammar checkers can — and cannot — do.

Help for culturally diverse students. The first handbook author to include such help, Diana Hacker offers clear and simple advice for nonnative speakers in a separate ESL section as well as in boxed tips throughout the book.
