Critics’ Reviews

“The Broadview Guide to Writing (4/e) registers the seriousness of academic writing yet reads like an amiable conversation with writers. … Seldom have I encountered a handbook that demonstrates so concretely the connection between how we think and what we write…. The new section on sentence combining is welcome. Other features I value include the emphasis on writing-across-the-curriculum and the up-to-date MLA documentation guide. I don’t think it’s possible to include more in a handbook than this reasonably priced volume contains.” – Robyn Fowler, University of Alberta
“… Offers solid advice on matters of style and usage without being repetitive or overly elaborate.” – Richard Collier, Mount Royal College
“The overall structure of this book is similar to [that of Andrea] Lunsford. The prose is highly readable and the authors address questions such as ‘correctness’ very well.” – University of Michigan English 229 Textbook Committee
