What makes this reader especially applicable is its focus on the written and the visual. The visual is seamlessly integrated. It's not an afterthought….

Sarah Quirk,Waubonsee Community College "This book definitely has personality. It is the most '21st-century' textbook I have ever read…The writing is quite good but also informal; the subjects tend to be quite youth-friendly; and there's an interesting mix of old and new: classical rhetoric meets film studies meets visual rhetoric meets English-101 writing apparatus."
