Toby Fulwiler and Alan Hayakawa's goal in writing this 3rd edition of The Pocket Reference For Writers is simple yet progressive: to make it possible for students to have a highly condensed, inexpensive Writing Across the Curriculum oritented rhetoric / handbook that can be used in any college course. With this in mind, Pocket 3 is organized around the interrelated stages of writing called planning, composing, researching, revising, and editing. It explains and illustrates issues of style, grammar, punctuation usage, and mechanics as matters of choices that depend upon audience, purpose, and situation rather than static and absolute rules. Like the other Fulwiler/Hayakawa handbooks, all the writing is exceptionally clear, jargon-free, and engaging for college writers to read, which make for an ideal classroom companion.
