Combining streamlined, nuts-and-bolts writing instruction with outstanding accessibility and visual appeal, The College Writer Brief breaks new ground in brief rhetorics. While most first-year writing texts fail to appeal to today's visual learners, this rhetoric with readings and research guide has four-color line drawings, color-coded headings, easy-to-grasp graphic organizers, and other design elements on nearly every two-page spread, targeting the needs of less-prepared students. From dynamic visuals to engaging essays and examples, the authors have made both content and presentation optimally exciting and useful for the student. The brief edition is identical to the full edition of The College Writer (2004)--less the handbook section--making this version useful for those who prefer a separate handbook.
