Authoritative, comprehensive, and always reliable, The Little, Brown Handbook meets the current and recurrent needs of composition students and instructors.

A bestseller since the first edition, The Little, Brown Handbook provides reliable and thorough coverage of handbook basics--the writing process, grammar and usage, research and documentation--while also giving detailed discussions of critical reading, academic writing, reading and writing arguments, writing in the disciplines, and public writing. Widely used by both experienced and inexperienced writers, The Little, Brown Handbook works as both a comprehensive classroom text and an accessible reference guide.

The twelfth edition of The Little, Brown Handbook provides all the resources that instructors have come to expect but with an added media component.  Students who purchase the e-text or iPad version of this handbook will benefit from added instruction and practice through exercises, tutorials, podcasts, and sample papers.
