Now updated with expanded documentation, research, and writing across the curriculum coverage, The Brief Penguin Handbook continues to revolutionize the way handbooks present information. The design and approach of The Brief Penguin Handbook started with ideas and suggestions from real students, and thus it is uniquely successful when it comes to giving students the information they need in a format they will actually use. With unique visual guides and models for writing, research, and documentation, distinctive coverage of writing for different purposes, and Lester Faigleys clear, accessible explanations, The Brief Penguin Handbook has established itself as the best-selling handbook to enter the market in eighteen years. The Third Edition of this extraordinary handbook continues to lead the market with complete new chapters on using database and Web sources, a new visual five-step guide to the documentation process, and updated and expanded documentation coverage. New process guides for writing for different purposes, a new section on writing across the curriculum, and more student model documents than ever make this Third Edition the best resource for writing yet.Faigley, Lester is the author of 'Brief Penguin Handbook', published 2008 under ISBN 9780205505821 and ISBN 0205505821.
