From the publisher: Lester Faigley's clear and inviting teaching style and Dorling Kindersley's accessible and striking design combine to create a textbook that shows what readers and writers actually do. Unique and dynamic presentations of reading, writing, and research processes in the text bring writing alive and speaks to those with many learning styles. Throughout the book, the readers are engaged and learning, with such notable features as "process maps" to guide through the major writing assignments, extensive examples of student "Writers at work," and diverse, distinctive reading selections.
