The Broadview Guide to Writing is a comprehensive text with a fresh approach to the craft of essay writing. The first part of the book discusses the style and structure of essay writing, and includes a useful discussion of the intangibles involved in the writing processsuch as confidence, perseverance, and a willingness to deal with criticism constructively. The second part of the book provides thorough coverage of grammar and usage in a reference guide, ranging from the simplest mechanical issues (such as subject verb agreement) to subtle distinctions between words that have similar meanings. A wide range of examples is included throughout the book. The newedition has been updated throughout and now incorporates the 2008 changes to MLA Style guidelines for documentation. A new chapter on sentence combining isalso includedand a new set of exercises on the same topic.
