|aLunsford found that today's students write more than ever before-- and make rhetorically appropriate choices in texts they create outside the classroom. This is the first handbook to help students build on the smart decisions they make as recreational writers in order to succeed in their academic and professional work. It is an all-in-one teaching tool and reference that shows students how to write effectively for any purpose.
