Nothing! This book really helped me strengthen my argument papers and also helped me to see a lot of the fallacies in our country and our political system and the way that they argue. Even besides argument, this book includes most writing skills for the average college writer. Also a great book for class because of all the assignments throughout and The Reader in the back, which is full of stories and essays to view and discuss.Overall, a great book on how to make a strong, valid, logical argument in your paper! Write a paper before you use this book and after and you'll be surprised in the difference.read more
This combination rhetoric/reader helps readers develop strategies for critical reading, critical thinking, research, and writing that will help the reader argue clearly and convincingly. It teaches them to identify and develop arguments, to read and form reactions and opinions of their own, to analyze an audience, to seek common ground, and to use a wide, realistic range of techniques to write argument papers that express their individual views and original perspectives on modern issues. The critical reading section was helpful because it helped me with writting my papers more convincingly.
I wish it would have gone more in depth on how to cite sources when writing an argumentative paper.read more
Having a chapter that goes more in depth on citations and how many sources you can quote and site in a paper. I always felt like I cited too much and that most of my paper was just quoting others information.
How to write essays with different topics. I was use to writing paragraphs.read more
We don't go over everything, so it wasn't very helpful. But it was useful.
The most interesting thing I learned from this book is the many stories in the back of the book. These stories touched various different type of people and places. It was a nice insight into different cultures and time periods.read more
The primary subject of the book was to help develop a very good argument on a specific topic. It outlined what all needed to be done in order to have an effective argument. It was very effective!
I learned a lot about citing sources in my writing.read more
Well it helped me to understand some of the formats for writing that my teacher was talking about.
I took a class in Persuasive Writing and this book outlined many aspects of argumentation. A lot of the assignments in our class came directly from this book (i.e. essay questions, short answer assignments, essay evaluations) and I feel that it was a decent book overall.read more
I liked the sample essays following each topic discussed. The outline of the text was rather simple to follow, as well.
I have never read another book on this subject matter, but the book seemed a little dumb. It pretty much told me common sense info that I feel like everyone already knows.read more
The most useful thing that I learned from this book was the TRACE method to forming a strong argument.
