For college writing courses.

Just enough of everything...clearly.

This, the leading writing guide organized by rhetorical modes, gets the basics right, presenting all of the material for an introductory college writing course with exceptional clarity and in appropriate measure.  Refreshingly, the student examples are realistic models for emulation, and the professional selections are engaging, student-centered pieces of prose that make clear use of the rhetorical mode under consideration.  Reinking and von der Osten's conversational yet concise style eases student apprehensions, while their reliability supports individual teachers and entire writing programs alike.
