Hacker handbook coverage at a bargain price. Covering everything students look for in a handbook, Rules for Writers is written in commonsense language and uses accessible terminology — and it still costs less than even other concise handbooks.

A practical classroom text and thorough guide to writing, research, argument, and document design. With clear advice at every stage of the writing process, a wide selection of class-tested exercises, five sample papers, ample charts and illustrations, and thorough discussions, Rules for Writers is an effective teaching tool.

A reference text students can use on their own. Trademark reference features — hand-edited sentences, tutorials, a brief menu inside the front cover, color-coded documentation sections, and a user-friendly index — allow students to find what they need and use what they find.

An uncluttered page design. With ample white space, the book’s pages lay out complex material and new visual elements as simply as possible, allowing users to find answers quickly.

A fully integrated book and companion Web site. "On the Web" references throughout the book direct students to class-tested Web resources.
